a light shines

a light shines
quietly, silently, it shines
it is pitch dark
but from the depths
like moonlight on a still night
it shines

it is all silent
it is all dark
nothing moves
and the light calls out
drawing us all to itself

every tragedy
every delight
all that crushed your soul
all that gave life to it
comes from the light
and dissolves into it

like the craters on the moon
the light acquires  
shapes and forms
they live
they die
and the light shines on

more light 
means more night
more night
means more light
a play of light and darkness
that’s all there is
and all there was

the lights shines on
the reflections die
the shadows pass
like bubbles in the lake
now here
now gone
but the light shines on
