The Night is Light
Running over the moors I hear the river declaring my progress, laughing at the spirit always running ahead of me. I go down to a quiet pool and slide into the deep, black water. Echoes of the river’s laughter further upstream reach my ears. Suddenly the water is cold, the light has left and I have been caught napping.
As I run, I leave only damp footprints behind me, sufficient for the Beloved to track me. I run forwards, I run with, I run towards the All-Embracing Light. The night tricks me. Caught unaware, it takes me in a tight embrace and for moments I cease to breathe. One. Two. Three. A meteorite reveals its activity. Release! The night expanse enlightens this vulnerable being, breathes it, and sparks the spirit!
