For Fugushima.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

at dawn we again lighted
the lone candle at the altar

we will not blow the light off
till nighttime

till it consumes itself
till we light another candle again

this small light is our offering
to the engulfing darkness of this universe

it is this light that prays in silence
together with those distant stars in the heavens...
