God Light


Have faith even when you have no faith
of things getting better.
The spark of our Creator within can
burn brightly through the worst of times.
Go within; know your God Light,
fan the flame, rejoice in the Grace,
which helps us through hard times.

  1. I reread the poem about the eucalyptus. Aren’t they the leaves Panda bears eat? I’m alergic to them. Used to have a wreathe or two in my shop when it was open and finally realized what was giving me fits of coughing. Also liked God Light.

    • According to an Internet search, Pandas eat mainly bamboo shoots. I live on an ecological project in central Brazil, Santa Branca. It is also a game preserve. There are massive farms of eucalyptus trees planted here in Brazil as well as other countries. Ironically, people have cut down wonderful hardwood forests (Paraguay has cut 97% of its trees and is experiencing severe climate and ecological losses.) Now people are reforesting with eucalyptus because it is very profitable and can be cut in five years and usually even a second or third time. However the trees shut out other trees and do not provide the ecology for wildlife thus become “dead forest.” They rob the soil of nutrients and put back very little of use. Additionally, they drain off water for large distances as they require huge amounts of water. Reclaiming land that has been used for these destructive, prolific trees is costly and requires a long dormant time for the soil to be replenished. Yet greed is a huge blinder to these problems. Thanks for your comments and I am glad you liked this other poem. Hugs, pat
