You Be The Light

Anaphora Poem by Beth Brody

Light the longest winter nights. Light
the house and hedges with a million
falling twinkle stars. Light the tree
with bluegreenred. Let the light shine out,
reflect the wonder of delight
in children’s eyes. Lighten hearts,
shed light on true desires.
Light a guiding blaze towards New Year’s Eve,
alight upon your future. Light one candle,
then light eight, as moonlight voices
lift in song.
Light a warming hearth with love.
Light a spark of hope:
Light up cities,
Light up farms.
Give light to all those destitute, defenseless, and ignored.
You be the light.
Illuminate the world.
