Light in the Darkness, Darkness in the Light

Beautiful darkness

Fall into the endless void

Absolute blackness


Horrible brightness

Recoil from the blinding light

Unending whiteness


Light in the darkness

Fear and happiness entwined

Darkness in the light

  • Too much of anything is hazardous. It's always important to maintain a balance. Loved your Haikus!
