An Explosion of Light (Advent II)


This week the light doubles itself
and halves the darkness.

Each week following this one 
the single new light will add 
less and less light to the gathered light.

But this week's light is powerful, dazzling, dizzying.
And still it coexists with the dark.
The dark recedes but never disappears.

The darkness surrounds and pervades the edges of the light.
Soon there will be so much light
that the darkness will cower in corners.
But it will dot die, or flee or fade.
It will remain, waiting for its turn.
And its turn will come.

The darkness has its own season ~
a dark advent
and that is coming too.

But this week the light doubles itself
and halves the darkness.
