The Light Within the Light

Can’t be seen but can be felt,
a presence in a cosmic rainbow
enabling you to witness
death’s whirling dance
like a moth in streetlight.
The radiance of a lighthouse
in an unchartered sea
will prepare you for the
arrival of unexpected guests.
If space is not curved enough,
there’s always Bread and Circus
well-hidden beyond our ken.
