Darkness – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“You can’t study the darkness by flooding it with light.” Edward Abbey

Darkness

Have you known those deep ecstasies having
ventured into that impenetrable darkness
which shines its light for a path beyond
the stolid middle towards the wild, beckoning, 
fringes of everything where the rays of darkness
illumine mystery's sweet reversal,
vesting you in raiment of understanding
that has no possible words only sighs?

  1. Paul, a lovely reflective poem. The phrase “rays of darkness” challenges us to “see” a world beyond our ordinary vision. ❤ All the best! Cheryl

  2. This is an exciting poem, the idea of dwelling, seeing in darkness. We avoid darkness, but it’s the only way to experience life to the fullest.
