Lights

Festive lights flicker
like recognition
on a long lost friend’s face,
intrigue replaced by a smile
bathing you in a fresh warm glow
of happiness, new found;
sending wisps of darkness
merrily on their way to
another corner where
the smiles have not yet reached.

Festive lights flicker
like hope sometimes does
in times of desperation.
Coming back on
much like it had gone off
a few moments ago,
liberally sprinkling
twinkles into eyes
watching from a distance,
the lights reaching the soul.
