May 28th

Smoke created
from burnt prayers of thanks
swirls through an open window.

Prayers create
a white swirling show
which are cut through
by beams of light
from an opposite window.

Yet between each beam
a dark shadow lies.

Folds in the curtain
stop light
from coming though.

And yet,
without it ,
the illuminated rays
would not
be seen.

Appreciate the folding,
the darkness that lies in between,
for the rays of hope and light
would never been given their form
and would go
