Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

the contribution of darkness

the garden was bright and shining


east of the garden was bleak and hard


nothing outside the garden

art or religion or politics or literature

or love or song or dance or work or death

would be beauty or truth

without the hint of darkness

without the taste of black



One response to “the contribution of darkness

    Yes, I see those contrasts all around me, appreciate the lightness of being all the more because of that “hint of darkness.”
