Shadow Puppets


In darkness
We cannot see
But without it
We wouldn’t see light.

Darkness is inferior to light
Darkness is evil
It blinds our light;
Performs shadow puppets in our mind.

Light is too clear
Darkness makes it beautiful
But we forget
Even light can blind.

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
