light remains without weight
and until light is defied
its presence is unnoticed
do you see light?
no! you only see
the effect of light
on what obstructs light
oh, how powerful is this light
that has no significance on its own
(like a religion without followers)
but wait! light is fast, isn’t it?…
and with a smirk of pride
light raced against all creation
but upon reaching
burned with envy, as
darkness was already there
waiting for her
I was reading two different answers about seeing light
Light is the only thing we can see
We inherently cannot see light.
What we see is actually the object on which the light falls.
I chose to write about the latter.
What are your thoughts?
Oh, and I could not resist being a little cheeky about the speed of light :)
These are in fact two poems combined
