Search Shadow for Light

From Visual Counterpoint

Carly asked us for a photograph of clouds.

I would like to show what clouds our vision.

Not only with a photograph but with words that formed in response to the darkness and light that surrounds me.
I have therefore put my entry here instead of my other journal that I usually use.
The photograph was turned into monochrome in photoshop.

'Search light' From Colour Contrast Continuity

It only takes one cloud to cover the sun,
And eclipse the light where I stand,
It only takes one lie to hide the truth,
And deny me the justice I demand.

It only takes time for the light to dawn,
And flood the place where I stood,
It only took one to stand for the truth,
That ignorance misunderstood.

It only takes light to search for the truth,
And freely give facts to be learned,
It only takes one to uncover the future,
For which all restless souls yearned.

It only takes time for the truth to be known,
And eclipse the darkness ignorance throws,
It only took one to hold the flame,
And deny the lies sin forever shows.

I am unable to access other entries to Carly's challenge via my computer for reasons beyond my understanding. Carly knows my problems and I wish everyone who enters her challenges my best wishes and every future happiness.

Glad you posted your picture here. I still visit this journal the most. Sorry it's taken some time to reply, but I wasn't feeling the greatest. Loved your poetry, as always. Wonderful!
