shining light (draft)
Footsteps and fancy uprooted the black sky.
The sempiternal winter abated for a glance,
Overturned by an unfurling heaven.
Evergreens craned to watch her glow,
As silence crooned for her unquiet ballads.
Stains of lightning fell in her wake.
Still, night swallowed her, gorging all but a star.
Still, shining light evaded the dark.
