Live Lightly

Turn on the light.
Cast your shadows on the floor
and leave them there.
Wander where you want to.
Now.

There's more than enough,
leave your worries in the dust.
Snap your fingers, make a wish,
fly away.
Pray.

Remember God?
When he was more than called in vein?
Really say his name.
Remember God. Or don't.

Just turn on your lights,
for days you didn't,
dark and dim.
Let them on,
never turn them off again.

Let them on? Perhaps 'leave' would be better.Just a thought. H
