TO KNOW THE DARK
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
It is only going into the darkness that one will see the light and take note. When in the light all that is seen is light. When darkness settles however, shadows stretch and the contrast between darkness and light casts its' own wonder, dancing across time and space. Without spending time in darkness would I notice the splendor?
