I shall never live in darkness
though shadows hover round my room
I’ll make a little light to shine
to keep away the sense of doom

I will write away the darkness
I will write of the stars so fair
I’ll even write some light for you
I have got plenty more to share

      thank you Jae. The picture was the prompt in the contest – I agree it is very cool. Feel free to use it for a story prompt 🙂

    That phrase, “writing away the darkness,” caught my heart as well. I need some of your attitude: my first thought when I saw this picture was, “oh, yes… how will I ever untangle these?”

      lol – my first thought was “oooh shiny!”
      It’s a curse…I love neatness, but am easily distracted!
