Dark Turns Into Light


Dark Turns Into Light

We can embrace the nightfall

Take a break from standing tall

The comfort of the night

Escape from worries of the fight

Gives time to hide away

From the situations of the day

See home like a cocoon to settle in to

Take a respite from what our minds go through

Stay calm to carry on

While the certainty is gone

Slowing down and being still

Helps bring back tomorrow’s will

Let’s take care then be sure to share

And support others with love and care

Really beautiful Nella, the last 4 lives bought tears to my eyes. You have such a lovely flow to your poems. Thank you.

The way of life right now is so different for so many people. I think this poem does address thar situation. It is a very good poem, Nella.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 19, 2020:

An encouraging poem, Nella. I work from home so there hasn’t been a lot of change to my routine, but I understand how those still out working in these worrying times that home would be a welcome sanctuary to return to each night. Hopefully things will get better before getting much worse.

Anya Ali from Rabwah, Pakistan on March 19, 2020:

Good poem!

Nella DiCarlo (author) from Guelph, Ontario on March 19, 2020:

Hope you are taking care, and the weather will get better soon for you I bet. I am actually still working, so maybe that's why home is still a welcome comfort in the evening. Let's hope things get better soon.

Kyler J Falk from California on March 19, 2020:

Hope you're staying safe out there, Nella! Personally, just hoping this rain and cold weather passes so that we can get back to our outdoor activities (still social distancing just outside). Being locked indoors is maddening, especially when all you have to look at is the internet! At least I can workout.
