Lifegiver

Light
is
both electromagnetic wave and particle

A split persona

We are bathed in gifts from the Sun
photons, neutrinos – all matter of stuff

(and stuff is all matter)

Light
burns and blinds – damages DNA

A shining killer

Our atmosphere and magnetosphere shield us
partially

Oh those Northern Lights……….

Light
is the root of biology

In the heart of every leaf toils a circle of reactions
that turn light into a shining fountain of sugar
again and again and again

Without these all life is gone

Light

Sarah is hosting at dVerse tonight and it’s all about light. Come and join in!

Corona

Deep in the time of eclipse
As birds bed down and dusk creeps up
We see the Suns halo and crown
Reaching out to her children
Light in the darkness

Sunlight scatters from escaping electrons
Bounces off minute dust particles
While stripped atoms glow as crown jewels
Incandescently hot
Ethereal furnace

The act of seeing makes real
The fact of knowing sees beauty
The inner joyousness of the Universe
Lifts me
Up to the light
