Where There is Light - poetry and photography by Cristina M. R. Norcross

Where There is Light
(Photography - a tree in Lake Geneva)

There is light in your hand.
It spreads like a fan –
awakening the melody of movement –
each finger touching words.

Every line begins with story –
the story of a tree,
the story of the sun,
the story of how you started this poem.

There is light in your hand.
You look for it in shadows.
The first flicker of an idea
seems to escape –
a slippery fish.
The tightly held fist
doesn’t hold much.
You must open your hand wide.
