Day 13 #napowrimo Prompt: Something you find mysterious

A strand of light
a single thread,
bulging, opulent, suddenly fat

between entangled sprawling fingers

I squint my eye
and in the black tesseract,
a single light disturbed into a trepidation

What is a single light
and what is more?

The poem always continues.

The poet dies,
falls flat into the Earth’s smiling body
and the poem, large
like the body of a sea,
remains

In the gluttony of a drop,
light, light plucked from the wand of infinity

On the surface of sheet sea,
the hum of light

shivering, losing, falling,
a hand in and out of existence

In the window,
an orange sea,
in it eddies of gold

In my hands,
the plastic skin of light,
as if a shadow were peeled from its body

What is a single light
and what is more?
In the black night space
where only sound can be imagined
in white lit bones

There —
light,
parallel to being
nowhere and everywhere at the same time
not travelling
but being acknowledged in different streams
