Tuesday Poem – Cherish the Darkness

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

Instead cherish your own
dark spaces
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.
