I miss
the lamp
that gave me
light,
inspired me
to push
the yearning waves
towards the shore,
to write
temporary words
on the fickle
sands of time,
necessary
outpourings
of a vessel full,
some to be read
some washed away,
none forever,
like the moonlit
tides.

I could
the ego said
light my own,
truth be spilled
often I have tried,
but it just
doesn’t shine
quite as bright
as the one you lit,
for some little lamps
accidental in life,
carry an energy
beyond their flame,
paving the way
through
stormy weathers,
as a towering
standalone
lighthouse
might.
