Friday Poem: Light

Light seems like a suitable topic for a poem in the lead up to Christmas, what with all the associations with candles, stars, lanterns, the Light of the World…spectrum

A spectrum
brittle in the window glass
sharp sun
blazes on walls
bright hot
burns clear
illumines with
a rainbow shaft
magic
the universe’s simple magic
bright broken streaks
of light
a crystal spilled.
