Closed and Open

There is a tenderness in the morning,
when eyes grown used to dark open to light.
It is as if light bruises, gives warning,
confuses. It is as if light invites
the night, all things closed, all hearts in mourning
to open. Things that are dark may grow bright.
Things that are open, close. This is the night
full of gladness, dazzling, gentle with sight.

  1. And good Easter image – out of the darkness brilliant light when Christ arose

  2. All hearts in mourning are invited to open…that is so exquisite, and of course, it takes much courage.
