Darkness and light

a wildflower in black and white

“Help us to be the always hopeful
Gardeners of the spirit
Who know that without darkness
Nothing comes to birth
As without light
Nothing flowers.”
~May Sarton, from “The Invocation of Kali”

Most of us prefer the “light” times of life, filled with happiness and ease, but the darkness and the light are both necessary.

Nothing is born without time in the darkness to gestate. Nothing blooms without the sun’s light.
