Light Poem

Light Poem

circling in the pool

    a special kind of dark called light

    and another clear, not dark or bright:

    full light and empty light

down where the rapid resolves, water falls

    to foam of energy (blackwhite light) and bubbles

    reflect, absorb each other: whiteblack rocks, blackwhite falls

    ink leaves no trace on water.
