Lights by Jack Dorning



Are not visible in the depths of the ocean

Where nature is uninterrupted and calm 

Or in the bowels of dense uncharted jungles 

Where industrious insects farm 

Are they needed on towering mountains 

That are covered in glistening snow ? 

Or on the mysterious , distant planets 

But will we ever know ? 

They say , there is light at the end of the tunnel 

Will we ever venture that far ?  

All that is needed in the blackest night time 

Is our solitary guiding star 

Are lights essential to enhance reality 

Or do they already abound ? 

Igniting in every single of us 

When love and understanding are found...
