LOVE IS TO THE SPIRIT WHAT A MOON BEAM IS TO THE NIGHT #poetry by jay

Love is to the spirit what a moon beam 

is to the night

A smile so bright

that darkness hides 

under a rock

defeated by the brilliance

of the white-hot light

Dancing on the stars

staying awake all night

darkness runs 

to the corners 

of the earth

escaping the wrath

of its competitors heart

Love is to the spirit what a moon beam

is to the night

Reflections of galaxies

upon the oceans bright

mirrors of adoration

adorning faces despite

the darkness that challenges

loves white-hot light.
