the Ancient Conflict

 

 

Rhyme of the Ancient Conflict

 

Let there be Light, He said

And the Darkness fled

But who is this stealing in

Sneaking around , back again

 

Light has overcome

Dark will not run

Light speaks again

Dark is chagrined

 

Be it only right

Not able to overcome,

For then try to smite

And plunder His sum

 

Darkness judges life

Encircles the Light

Proclaims His demise

Will not be mere surmise

 

The timber of the tree

Bears a shadow of life

And can it be three

The nails of stricken strife

 

The skies turned

A caliginous gloom

Darkening to spurn

Even vestige a moon

 

Darkness dances his jig

With a laugh of evil glee

At last he was winning big

Light hung limp upon the tree

 

Death by his evil decree

Carried Light to the grave

Darkness at last mighty

Nothing would Light save

 

Light entombed one day

Darkness still of caution

Too soon to claim decay

Stone is sealed from illusion

 

Light entombed day two

Death his grip held fast

Darkness detects naught askew

Nothing he can’t outlast

 

Early of the tomb day three

Darkness hearkens a report

Deaths message incites fury

Light escaped, extinction cut short

 

Sealing stone is carried away

Open door streaming sunlight

Death has lost its very first prey

Darkness more than his dolorous fight

 

Light is vitalized, He’s alive

 Death and Darkness defeated

Heaven’s gate is opened wide

The Thief is gravely depleted

g.w.

 

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3

“The Light shines in the darkness and darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:5

More info available in 'About Me' on my site page.(There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." I didn't design this thing.It came as-is.)Also WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You have to click the 'close and accept to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions. If something seems simple you're probably doing it wrong.
