Offered Light

Writing and teaching

for the sake of the reader

for the benefit of the student,

is a golden act.

Ideas forged, molded, and perfected

may one day take flight,

like a million butterflies,

made of soft yellow light.

Drifting in the blue air,

between minds.

Eyes, and ears,

feast, and soar!

The final and true trill,

a buried treasure,

hidden in a held breath.

as readers, and students,

understand, and thus

conquer the moment.

Understanding becomes a trophy,

held in an glassy orb,

with a swirling metal bottom,

plugged in,

glowing a brilliant yellow,

over the worthy heads,

of the educated.
