Poetry Day 25: An Anaphora

Out of the Darkness…

Squash Blossom

The Glow

Into The Light

Out of the dark into the light that glows.
Yellow
All life begins with yellow.

Out of the darkness into to the fray, that sounds.
A wail
All life begins with a wail.

Out of the darkness into the heart, that opens.
A rose,
New life begins with a rose.

Out of the darkness into the arms, that wait.
A mother,
New life begins with a mother.

Out of the darkness into the garden, that grows
A child,
New life begins with a child.

Out of the darkness into the world, that welcomes
A father,
New life begins with a father.

Darkness surrenders
a family is born.

Carol Carlisle 4/25/14

 Anaphora is a literary term for the practice of repeating certain words or phrases at the beginning of multiple clauses or, in the case of a poem, multiple lines.
Did this work as an Anaphora?
