Lover’s Light

Lover’s Light by Jay Higgins

Lost worlds do linger in the winter breeze
Where all frozen nights long for what the seer sees
Which is all that is seen in light of what new lovers do hold tight
For the fresh lover’s sight that sees through the long frozen night
Thaws all winter days and clears the fog with lost lover’s light

My grandmother gently imparted a fierce, lifelong love of nature, art, and poetry within me. This, I now believe has merged with a tendency to attempt to understand life in all the mesmerising ways it presents itself.

I could always be found with a pen in my hand. Drawing whilst a young child and teenager and then moving into poetry and journaling in my early twenties.

Although I am not a published author or poet, I take my writing very seriously. My work is the expression of myself trying to understand myself and this life we all share. And, if anything was to be taken more seriously, I don’t profess to know what that would be. I write about life, love, and the people who get caught up in the pain and rapture of it all.

Outside of my day job, I love to read, camp, and hike in nature with my beautiful wife. We also spend our free time travelling as often as we can. Cambodia and her people are like a second home to us.
