The Light
The Light
Do you see the light?
Squint — squint some more.

Ahh! Yes, I see it now
Finally!
It is so bright.
Like liquid flames dancing in my head
Its long elegant fingers are beckoning me to come to it
To come closer still

Should I go to it?
I am afraid.
Should I bathe my soul in its purity?

Do not be afraid.
Do not run from it.
Do not hesitate.
Do not draw back from it.
Go to it now.
Your only chance to bask in its warmth
Dance it its glorious ecstasy
And cleanse your soul
Just like I did, a long time ago
Paul Alleyne 12/08/07

" Using Photoshop CS2, I merged 5 digital photo images, partially edited then cropped and positioned each image alongside or on top of another image to form this one surrealist image, which along with the written words representing renewal of spirit, with hope for the future."
