within this radiant light


how dark it is

just as night should be


no moon   no stars

that i can see


no lights but this screen

which blinds me


to everything beyond 

its radiance


harry sweets edison

keeps company


a poem by chris santiago



yet   this is where i want to be

senses engaged

It's funny to be reading this poem well before sun-up, when my own tablet is the only nearby light. You've set the mood nicely.

I'm sorry to hear about your injury, Jim.
