When Light Breaks You Open

by Christina Hubbard

Only the strength of His light

Carries me through

Gray days.

Within this mortal cage

I expand

Until ribs cannot

Hold oxygen

One second


Once I burst

Clean open.

A crack in the shell

Split under


When you see me next,

Brilliance might just

Blind you.

Where is light pushing its way out in you today?

  • The Light is pushing my sour attitude about my mil out of my cupboard of resentments and grudges. It’s time to let that puppy go!

    Love your vivid imagery! The light contained then exploding out from the ribs, cage, shell – so good!

    From my arms to the dear ones around me. I cannot help but hug them and tell them they are loved.
