Let There Be Light

In the darkness

Stretching shadows

Creating shapes in the dark

A hand

Reaching

.

Click

The light turns on

Then it flickers back off

And the room descends into darkness

.

Eyes adjusting

Beginning to see

The shapes

Discerning them through the dark

.

Click

Again

The light

Showing the colored world

Where there is no fantasy

Only reality

.

Sitting

On the bed

In the lighted room

It must have been the lamp

It must have caused the hand

.

Without the light

Unseen

The truth within the dark

.

The light

Returning color

To the black room

Pointing out the obvious

That was never so easy to see before

In the darkness

Up until

There was light
