The Brightness of Night

A poem by Isabelle Sorrells

With the setting of the sun

And the rule of the night

Brings darkness.

But the night is not as black as it seems.

Even with our man-made suns and fires

To keep our fears at bay

There is still the light of the moon and stars to guide our way,

Casting a silvered glow upon the earth

And illuminating a world daylight never sees.

The night’s lights shine more brilliantly

Than we care to remember.

Perhaps we get so consumed by the darkness

We forget the light is still there,

For darkness does not always mean

Absence of light.
