Rereading Jane Eyre

This post was written in response to this week’s Sue Vincent’s Writephoto prompt. Check out Sue’s wonderful blog for more information.

Too Bright

Sometimes the sky’s too bright.

The dazzling light melts our thoughts,

And blinds our minds.

Sometimes a moment of brilliance,

Becomes an instant of glittering madness,

An illusion of eternal clarity,

Spinning our mind into a flash

Of confusion.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget

The lies we heard

And the tears we shed.

They hold the intensity and the radiance,

Of the moment that outshines the pain,

Which never aches,

Because once,

The sky was too bright.


This poem is meant as a tribute to the great Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, from whom I have borrowed the first line of his famous poem: ‘Sometimes the Sky’s Too Bright‘.
