The darkness is waiting 
to reach its fullness

out of sheer boredom
knowing it cannot keep

encroaching with such
inherent persistence

insistent without withering
giving way to light

whole in its shyness
revolving until we see

out of the corner
what we always were

turning in stillness
altogether present

despite the brilliance
here in the darkness
