Light Within, Light Without

sunrise

She didn’t need walls,
Boarded windows, locked doors.
What good is a shelter if it keeps out life?

She needed reminding,
and telling –  retelling,
That a self-made light could brighten a home.

The home-stoked fire gave off true warmth.
It just never compared to the sun’s own glow.
