The Light Will Not Die

Poetry on Odyssey: Lux in Tenebris

when the world is covered in darkness

and death appears at every door

we shall not be afraid

for the light of the Lord

will always be there

come most holy light

shine upon us

illumine our hearts with your love

strike the shades of fear from our faces

even in the deepest parts of the universe

beyond what we can see in the night sky

shines the light of God in the faintest

twinkling of a star reflected in the glistening of

an eye

the light shines in the darkness

and though the light may be in the darkness

that was also made by the Creator

the darkness shall never overcome the light

may the light, the love of the Lord, shine upon our faces

and renew the face of the earth

that where we stand is no longer a hopeless abyss

but a peaceful sunlit, son-lit, love-lit beach

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
