Those with a bright mind
Can be besieged by darkness

Note: The inspiration for this poem came to me after viewing the above image. The first line of this poem came to me directly and I spent a few hours after writing the next two lines. I wrote it in the Haiku form of poetry which I believe makes one think and come to one's own unique insights. I also thought about it some more and came up with a second version of the same poem by substituting one word in each of the lines giving it a slightly different meaning.
I have published these two poems for the first time on my blog today, 11 September 2017.
