for that one bright spark
that hovers in this dark,
the phosphor star inside
that flares in odd moments,
that holds the great flood at bay –
my heart, my soul, my life
for that one bright spark
that rises in the oddest moments,
of wrestling with son,
or embracing my great love;
in laughing with daughter
and of seeing the day
in a strange new way
let me give
my voice, my god, my words,
for that one bright spark
