Lofty Skylight

Akin to a mirrored globe aglow
Throwing gobs of light in disco


A skylight filtering light inside
Shadow etchings kaleidoscopic wide


Intricate bright and dark patterns
Throwing relief in stark caverns


Utilitarian sparse towering open squares
Gain a personality with such light wares


A meteoric shower like a firecracker burst
Architect’s beam assuages his creative urge


Segregation, barriers figure not in disbursal
It spreads hope to all n everything, universal

A unifying force is this high floodlight verily
Taking from ignorance to knowledge merrily

Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return;
it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished. ~Michael Strassfeld

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. ~Chinese Proverb

There are two kinds of light – the glow that illumines,
and the glare that obscures. ~James Thurber

You can’t have a light without a dark to stick it in. ~Arlo Guthrie

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle
or the mirror that reflects it. ~Edith Wharton

The hero is the one who kindles a great light in the world,
who sets up blazing torches in the dark
streets of life for men to see by. The saint is the man
who walks through the dark paths of the world,
himself a light. ~Felix Adler


Wherever you go, no matter what the weather,
always bring your own sunshine. ~Anthony J. D’Angelo
