Favorite Quote:
“Unless we are creators we are not fully alive” - Madeleine L’Engle

A ring of pure and endless light

Dazzles the darkness in my heart

Where seeds of all relentless blight

Will never be allowed to start


The ring of light is made of hope

And full of fresh expectations

Of capability to cope

With less than great exultation


For the human heart is greedy

Taught to demand satisfaction

And the human heart is needy

Wanting love and true compassion


So humans need a saving grace 

An against all odds, be-safe place

A ring of pure and endless light

To dazzle the darkness in all hearts

This poem is inspired by Madeleine L'Engle's book "A Ring of Endless Light," book 4 in the Meet the Austens series (and my favorite one out of the five!)
