8-24 Shadowland

Shadowland

 

When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

—John 8:44

 

The Lie slants upright.

 

The world winks at Lie.

 

Which is greater, when Truth becomes Lie or Lie becomes Truth?

 

The tongue sweeps brushstrokes of words

That lighten or darkness the twilight we dwell.

 

How words shade Truth and shine Lie!

 

The Nazarene once said

If the light that is in you is darkness,

How great is that darkness!*

 

Lie glazes me with flakes of light.

 

The darker, the brighter.

*Mt. 6:23
