I light candles
not to chase the dark away
but to embrace it
The glow of each small globe
stretching to the next
Not crashing through the room
In brute technology
demanding that the day start
in defiance of the sun
But gently, slowly, carefully
honoring the dark corners
and offering just enough guidance
to avoid the furniture

for the 10/29/19 prompt at OctPoWriMo, “light”.
