Light of the Moment

By Rebecca Allison

The jack-o-lantern’s glowing smile
The shimmer of new fallen snow
The blaze of candles on a birthday cake
The floating lights of Divali
The flickering candle of a menorah
The glistening Christmas lights
Each a light in the dark
The light of each day
That breaks the norm
Slays the ordinary
And allows the celebration
Of the new and the wonder
