Dreaming the Luminous

A dismal land cries out for light,
and so we vow throughout this night
to see beyond forsaken skies,

conceive of sunshine, hopeful eyes,
receding clouds, succeeding rays,
the radiance of warmer days,

illumination ranging far,
a chance to know just where we are
and find those things we lost once more.

As shadows lapse and dreamers soar,
embrace this brilliance. Start to feel
that we could make this vision real.
