If we choose to hide the light,
and bring about a quickened night,
no one else can ease our plight
as darkness limits heart and sight.
Yet take a lesson from the sun
that is not hidden from anyone
for more than a short time before
a crack appears beside her door.
What hides her light moves on and then
light is restored as it has been.
So find that brightness at your core.
Perpetual darkness is a bore.
The prompt today was “Eclipse.“
