We come to know light by darkness.
Illumination though, is both inner and outer.
Inner radiance is brighter than outer brilliance.
Enlightenment is deepest coming from within.”
– Chito L. Aguilar

Light showers on our lives.

[a nonet*]

on our lives
bathing the sham
washing the charade
dousing the masquerade
in our shadows of pretense
till they flush into dark gutters
and dissolve in the limbo of farce.

fake and genuine
is repute.

false and true
is refute.)

– dispute
is between
repute and refute.

– illumination
is between
reflection and meditation.

(c) 2000 Chito L. Aguilar

    • Thank you very much my dear friend!

      I agree with your observation: Darkness amidst light…
      To illuminate (the hearts of many who never see the light)
      seems to be a perpetual pursuit. For as long as there is
      tempest in man’s heart, the cult of tumult (darkness) remains.

      We salute the torch-bearers of our times who never tire
      to guide lost souls. May their tribe increase.

      Have a happy weekend.
