I can see clearly…

The opening words of a song by Johnny Nash, from 1972. It continues…’ now the rain has gone, I can see all obstacles in my way, gone are the dark clouds that had me blind, it’s going to be a bright, bright sunshining day.’

An optimistic song after a difficult period in Nash’s life. The photograph somehow adds something to the lyric, or vice versa?!

I can see clearly,

but I see only dark clouds.

Turbulent and twisting

and gathering.

Imperceptibly illuminated

by light

in the darkness.

Hope in fear.

Laughter after tears.

Obstacles held to

the light…

of the World.

Light shining in the darkness,

bold enough

to see
