Between Light

Between Light

Between light and dark,
there is so much
we can see
and sometimes learn.
And when I look
at something
that needs
understanding,
I know that
truths of
light and dark
are so extreme
that no truth
can be revealed
without some
moderation.

I ask nothing,
and am rewarded
by a vision.
A macro vision
of a Phlox
enlarges an image
beyond my own
ability to see.
Imprisoned by
my inability
to understand
what I see,
I am typically human.
And still I see so little.

A flower
contains so much,
so many lessons.
This language,
we do not
understand.
It is such
a different vocabulary,
love on a stem.
We might understand
the general idea,
but all nuance
is missed.
A phlox
is different
somehow.
