Light and Dark are recurring themes in Presents of Mind.

The tenth piece, Rays, is about the entrance of light – breaking into the tangled, twisted fibres of night, penetrating harmful illusions, delusion, confusion, false self-concepts, fears, despair… you name it, restoring reality, balance and vision.

The poem is designed to be a little obscure (without being impenetrable!) so that the process of gradual dawning occurs through its reading. It was inspired by waking up early one morning to the first faint rays of dawn transforming the darkness inside with striking force.

As in all the other pieces, the imagery is made from the text of the poem.

I read an article by a psychotherapist recently which expresses a similar theme in very practical, clear terms.
