night lights


bright lights flash by in the darkness

candle flickers from a single flame

warm of the glow i can feel it from here

meanwhile a million blinking red and yellow lights pass over my eyes

flickering like waving — not on and off

like a sometimes faltering balance

like taking your time

like stumbling through your words but moving forward anyway

and the red and yellow lights blink their location with the midnight

within the inky sky

and as if i could take the words from the clouds and form them into something meaningful

something that would hit, pierce and would resonate

that ah ha moment when the parts came together on their own

everything just right as darkness lifts a corner of the sky like purple-blue blanket with shiny specks of light

red and yellow turning around

fading in and out

to a pulse

like shimmer

like a candle dancing

like a wonder

then stillness amidst the moment 

then stillness

and then
