reflection

staring back at me

my eyes soften in witness

a soul wrought with pain

contrast

between the space of stardust and starlight

lies a darkness,

a depth of shadow,

only seen before the light rises.

from charcoal bursts the greatest flames.

from rich soil sprouts the tastiest fruit.

you have the brightest shine

because of the darks.

for light on light blends,

bleeding into one another,

undiscerned.

it is in the contrast

where radiance resides.
