“A Lamp Illuminates” ( Psalm 119 : 105, ESV ) by Carley Evans

A Lamp Illuminates

by Carley Evans

The Word is a lamp,

Spilling the Light from a single source.

Before you, the path is dark

Except for the spot

The Word illuminates. Walk

There. Avoid the shadowed edges.


As you walk, the lamp

You carry sheds Light

Around you. The Light illuminates

A circle of dark, touching one

Or another walking ahead

Of you, behind you, beside you.


Not left at home, the lamp

You carry illuminates

A dark and weary world.
