pretty lights, 1st May 2016

look at all the pretty lights....... red lights, green lights, blue lights, yellow lights, even orange lights and of course white....... tiny lights everywhere at every turn... at night at night walk around your house at night see all the pretty lights appearing bright at night but not as bright as stars although they may have delusions to be stars instead maybe fallen angels... or... simply lights.... lights that litter staring back and some might even wink... yes wink!..... which is weird to say the least as maybe, maybe, just maybe, maybe makes them feel alive, more animate than in-.......so many, many, more than many, some you sometime overlook.... until they're gone...... then what?...... then you see them not being there, a gap where they should be but not........ each and every one so self-important saying nothing much but lots........ stand-by, charging, warning, telling time, safety this and safety that, surge-protected, and some that seem to have no purpose at all....... and then there are hums, tiny hums that hum along with the pretty lights almost imperceptible but humming all the same........... pretty lights, some blink, some sit not seeking such attention although at night in the dark they tend to give themselves away............ everywhere so many lights until.............. power cut!......... when nothing lights nor blinks and nor hums and dark can take a moment for itself.......
