Light

Standard

Light creeps in, aslant,
both cautious and curious,
and brings with it hope.

Enlightenment

Standard

When light arcs across tabletops
at just such an angle, one may
observe the fault line; peering through,
one may achieve a certain
unwelcome enlightenment.

You, ungrateful humans, are but
fragments of my consciousness,
reflections of my light,
safeguarded by my blindness,
fashioned from my spite.
