Let There Be Light

In the darkness

Stretching shadows

Creating shapes in the dark

A hand




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




The light

Showing the colored world

Where there is no fantasy

Only reality



On the bed

In the lighted room

It must have been the lamp

It must have caused the hand


Without the light


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
