the dance of light and shadow

she said
give me light
in this
the darkest night

i replied
there is no darkness
without the light in your heart

she said
the sun can’t see it’s own light
but must reflect
on the face of her children

i replied
the dance of shadow
may in fact be
the only dance we’ll ever know

she said
then step back
i’m about to dance
