But clarity – Enlightenment’s therein.
Enlightened thought would beam the beacon light,
and steer the eager anxious mind through strait,
ply profundity as freight, weightless weight,
with the heaps of cares carried overnight,
so to see the light when the day breaks bright;
when shining lights of lore illuminate
the way to short-cut wisdom, animate
the aims, pierce the fog and set the course right.
acts on lens and optic nerve—so we see,
but clarity—Enlightenment’s therein.
Let us gain the sages’ education:
Help to make it second nature so we
seek, outside shadows cast, their lights within.

|Light and clarity are two different beasts, sometimes. Excellent expression and image stream, Helga. I enjoyed this perspective.
