    “Dwelling in the Light” is a Quaker phrase.

    The play of light and dark is a fertile area for poetry.

    • I do have amongst my direct ancestors, Friends.

      Light and dark … yes, you are right, fertile 🙂


    • “Tricky Dicky” Richard Nixon professed to being a Quaker. 😦


    • … and you? I cannot claim to be a Quaker. I am not so peaceful, nor humble, nor reticent in thoughts or actions,

      Other Protestant denominations and even other religions, and ideologies, use the same or similar terms.

      For me, for this little haiku, first came the photo, then the idea. Most of my (documented) ancestors where not Quakers … they were … other … bunches of different other 🙂 Perhaps each individual ancestor, in each generation, had their own generational outlook and practices.
