The Light of Dark


Philip Claude Andermann

Rests make the music.
The deep shadow reveals there is powerful light.
We learn most from our mistakes.
The plane flies, fast, because of air resistance.
When alone we see the lonely.
When self-reflecting in the mirror
we see everyone,
that we are all connected.
When our heart gets broken open,
we understand others' suffering
and can open our hearts to others'.
When in night is the time
to reach way up,
to touch beyond the stars,
to touch others' skies
to turn their stars to suns.
In night our flare
becomes the sun for others.
We are never worlds apart
when we can dance for joy
in others' dawn
for it is ours.
When we light the path for another,
we also light our own.
Even when we seem blind,
we can feel the sun leading within,
even from across the Earth.
When winter approaches,
we know it is spring for our sister
on the other side.
All life is born
from death.
