Enigmatic light

How can there be darkness
in a universe made of light

how can extreme cold exist
in this cauldron of fire –

and unkindness and a lack
of love in a world where

sparrows and foxes come
and go with no agenda

other than to live to the full
where trees blossom

and bear fruit where
every living creature

has its hour of glory
and greed and envy

and anger and deceit
are quite unknown

John Lyons
