Bend of Light

By Melodious Monk

There are many wonderful qualities to light;
-dappled light
-Light of the world
-streaming light
-glistening light
-celestial light
-night light
-True light
-starlight…..just to name a few.

One of the amazing properties of light in nature is the drawing power it has. Plant life will do amazing things to “find the light.”  Either through bending, reshaping, or re-routing, plants are tenacious in finding a way to get to their life-giving light.  These fall days are getting shorter, but as we begin our procession toward the hopeful season of Advent, let’s remember to start searching and bending to find our much-needed Light.
