Backlit Cloud

Backlit cloud
frames the swirling darkness
where  anxieties stumble
against uncertainties.
These are futile times.
confusing, bewildering, painful:
it seems too much to bear.
Burdens collide in a nonsense world
of emptiness, selfishness and lies –
forces beyond our control.

Backlit cloud
shows us to turn and look another way
opening a new direction.
The light comes from within –
divine light from God
who dwells in us where
the Kingdom begins,
and calls us to turn our gaze outwards.

We  are to edge darkness with light,
conquering despair with hope;
called to embrace and heal the world, 
drenching all with love –
ourselves the back light
given by God.

[Mr G 16th October 2022]
