Light is Love

by Roy K Austin
(Dorset England)

Stars seem captive tonight, out there
held by their own gravity,
and so am I in thinking
space would mirror
the freedom of my inward gaze :
All life is light, the light
that fills the external void
while within, that feeling of space,
the loving space we make
where others live and move,
that space is freedom, loves expression
thus love is also life as well as light.
The face of youthful being
is mainly green and vain,
until it comes to know
that inside beauty
that hides its timeless age,
where an old man in time
hides his ageless youth.
