Advent Darkness

A Flicker pushes away the darkness
It scampers into the recesses
Of mind and space
The gentle glow
Persuades all is well

A small light can overcome
The darkest hour
Perpetrators of dark
Banished once more

Where to
For how long
Gone for ever
Only if the flame remains
Once extinguished
the darkness rushes to envelop

How long will the light shine
For ever
In this space or deep within
Spatial darkness is less fearful
Then the lurking darkness
Of the soul crying out

Waiting Advent light
To burn on the wreath
And once again in our hearts
Dispel all darkness
From our world

May we become the lights
of all space
And God our light within
