plug a flame into it

last night’s dream
a field of lamps.
dark, no hope of light,

unless a plug I found.

I could not.
the search in vain.
plugs I found – all wrong.

the darkness did confound.

then despair;
forever dark?
will glow e’er be seen?

still darkness all around.

friends appeared
and family, too
they handed matches

struck with light-giving flame

all at once
lamps came to life
void of power source

I don’t know how it came

but it did
and all were lit
burning in the night

dark fled like shame – the same.
