A Poem A Day
CHAPTER

light
light is found in odd places
often hidden
quite obscure
and sometimes rather ordinary
candle glow
sparkling snow
and the special light that illuminates dust motes
have you ever noticed the light in people’s eyes?
it is always different
bright
piercing
broken
refracted
concealed
and sometimes, quite sadly, not there at all
have you felt the special pleasure of viewing
sunlight through trees?
or a silent but glorious daybreak?
or the sun’s last sweet smile before it whispers
goodnight?
have you crawled under covers with a flashlight
and seen the special illumination of the pages
of a well-loved book?
light is born from love
and it is strange to me to discover
all the light inside myself
