Theme Week: Innocence – 1

Unquenchable Light

He reached for the stars
but he stretched out too far,
and they burned up his hands,
left him covered with brands.
But he reaches on still,
for he measures his will
as his light,
Matching might
with the stars.

Potential

You cannot be a sputtering candle
Telling of the fire from whence you came,
You have to be flame.

You cannot be the wind, weeping whispers
Of how you have blown to-and-fro so high,
You have to be sky

You cannot be a twittering songbird
Forever flapping about at the door,
Not when you could soar

– s. Clark
