Alvin G. Ens

About this Christian Poet:
Born and educated in Saskatchewan, I have taught high school English in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia. With my early retirement I now have more time for writing. My poems and a few short stories have been published in a variety of religious publications and anthologies. My book of poetic meditations, Musings on the Sermon, has just recently been short-listed by Word Guild in the category of self-published books.

Let Your Light So Shine

In my mid night ambulation
I see God has been busy
pricking the darkness
with thousands
of his omnipresent lights
with no basket of clouds
to hide
like a city on a hill
with no sinful smog
to distort
these my exhortations
to be one single light
prominent on its candleholder
shining unending
unerring
reflecting
my heavenly Father
in pricking the darkness
