His Light

    “His Light,” New Era, Apr. 1995, 51

    His Light

    Clouds sketched pink in

    a fading sky—

    Pink like cotton candy will

    be refined into golden pools

    whose everglow embers are

    whispered to rest

    in a deeper, darker


    A world watches

    without regret

    as a melting sun

    returns into foreverness.

    It will rise again.

    The same yesterday and in

    forever days to come—

    an Earth can explain

    as it rotates.

    Another son has risen.

    A world in darkness

    cannot understand.

    But they will

    feel the warmth that beams

    from a source of love

    so bright.

    And O what peace

    their world will know

    if they turn their hearts to

    His light.
