#PoetryBreak: Farolitos

Contemplative (M.A. Reilly)



Farolitos

  - by Arthur Sze

    (from The New Yorker)



We pour sand into brown lunch bags, then place
            a votive candle


inside each; at night, lined along the driveway,
            the flickering lights


form a spirit way, but what spirit? what way?
            We sight the flames


and, swaying within, know the future's fathomless;
            we grieve, yearn, joy,


pinpoints in a greater darkness, and spy sunlight
            brighter craters


on a half-lit moon; in this life, you may try, try
            to light a match, fail,


fail again and again; yet, letting go, you strike
            a tip one more time


when it burst into flame--        now the flames
            are lights in bags again,


and we glimpse the willow tips clutch at a lunar
            promise of spring.
