Ecstacy

One
might think
that it is
the diamond
who seeks out the light
but most surprisingly
it seems that it is the light
in her magnificent splendor
who is wooed by her own reflection
manipulated by each facet
called to dance in prismatic bliss
splintering in ecstasy…
it is the diamond
who holds the power
rendering light
unable
to look
hence.
