Tuesday Poem – Cherish the Darkness

Leave the blackness
of another’s depths
for them
that is their right.

Instead cherish your own
dark spaces
gifts
which opened
shed a greater light.

(c) Helen McKinlay

A small poem which visited me once in a meditative moment. Coincidentally, Michelle Elvy’s choice of Tuesday Hub Poem for this week is about another kind of darkness. Beautifully written by Erica Goss,The Darkroom is a must read as is the accompanying interview on poetry and technology.

Return to the Tuesday Poem Hub here and make sure you delve into the selection of other Tuesday Poems while you’re there.

  1. Lovely, lovely small poem, Helen. I’ll read it to those who come at 11 o’clock on Thursday mornings and who all remember you so affectionately
