Writing In the Light

*****

This one’s for the Lightwriters
Constantly reaching out
Teaching us all over again
What life is really all about

Some only touching one or two
Some helping many more
But all persist, for in this game
Numbers don’t correspond with score

It’s been long years — decades for some
They have been coaching patiently,
Forefront of us, to grow within
So all ascend will outwardly

How many times, how many ways
Can they find freshly to repeat
The basic tenets? Here’s one more!
An awesome and ongoing feat

Of selflessness and service
Of genuine pure love
Such as the future that they build
May be composed entirely of
