not the light.

Standard

when people continue to push the wrong button

over and over and over again

attempting to turn out the light

 opening the garage door instead

it’s clear they need more help

and calls for drastic measures.

they may not be sure what this is

but at least

they are now sure what it is not.

 

“there is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.”

new light.

Standard

as you step on, vacuum, sweep-up, curse, recycle

those painful and elusive pine needles

fallen from your wreaths, trees, garlands

stop a second to take a very close look

at the beauty of a sliced pine needle magnified

and you may see them in a new light.

day 4.

Standard

still no power, but beautiful days

“the town was glad with morning light; places that had shown ugly and distrustful all night long, now wore a smile; and sparkling sunbeams dancing on chamber windows, and twinkling through blind and curtain before sleepers’ eyes, shed light even into dreams, and chased away the shadows of the night.”

-charles dickens
