Sets sky to sizzle
Burns a trail through darkness.
Eyes dark, soft, soon demanding.
You coiled to give
Open to accept;
A question and an answer
You ask and ponder.
How much can be gathered in one moment,
How much lost; how much held and tasted?
The power of you
Find the formula, crack the challenge.
An imperative: Take the light, preserve it.
It is the essence.
Given and taken.
It is the being of you.
