Reflecting


Light
           from
                     the
                            sun
                                    reflects
                                                   off
                                                          the
                                                                  moon.

Light
           from
                     the
                            moon
                                        reflects
                                                       off
                                                              the
                                                                      snow.

Light
          from
                    the
                          night
                                     snow
                                                enters
                                                            my
                                                                   window.

Light
           from
                     the
                           window
                                           reflects
                                                         off
                                                               the
                                                                     ceiling.

Light
           from
                     the
                            ceiling
                                         enters
                                                      my
                                                              open
                                                                        eyes.

As
       I
            lie
                   in
                         bed
                                  this
                                           winter
                                                          night.
