A Universe of Light

universe of light (3).jpg

Naked,

before the frozen dawn,

supplicant to the light.

Rime ensnared, white.

 

A single crystal forms.

A gem

rolls to a

gnarled finger tip

and waits.

 

First ray fractures.

Perfection

for a moment the world is seen,

inverted and bright,

through prismatic light.

 

 

Death as night

shatters unseen

a universe

on cold asphalt
