Dark and Light

The window on the ceiling shines with light
Shadows turn away in fright from the strength
Hearts live again in the brightness that follows
Power returns to the body knocked down by darkness
Power of the light.

The truth of the light still brings about new darkness
Shadows born of the brightness shining through
Dancing among the light, taunting and hidingbr
Only from the shining of the night comes
The mock of darkness

Brian Baker 1998
