THE LIGHT AND THE LAMP

To provide warmth and comfort
every light, needs a lamp,
Some wise men thought a lamp
made of gold, or silver, or brass or
bronze might have the answer
These people had their biases
in what they themselves had
But to this day the light-maker
knows that a simple earthen lamp
will do, one crafted out of seven virtues
like the seven colours of light will be best.
To this day the light searches for a lamp
moulded of material like itself, one that
shares its history, material, and essence
will be best... as soon as light finds its
lamp I will let you know, for there will
be comfort in this world, and the light-maker
shall invent a prism too, to give alchemists
matching colours for their expensive
material lamps too.. so let us sit together
and huddle for the Light Maker has been
belittled as a cheap watchmaker.. let us give
time and space for Him to work His Magic
for everyone... and to this day every small ray
of light searches for its missing lamp.
