One Light

I lay in my room and watch

Bright colors

From a "black" light-

Whirling, spinning colors glance

From different objects

In the room.

Like my life -

Spinning colors -

What colors?

Brilliant - like these?

Then I turn off the "black" light.

The tubes still spin,

But no color is there.

No brilliance,

No reflections,

No inspiration -

Turn the Light on!

Let ME find that Light

In my life -

That One true Light!
