Painting How the Light Gets In by Kelly Leichert

How the Light Gets In

Illumination is not a delight 

sight fades through Time

chiming in a crease of light

night asleep at its post 

Most revelation is accidental 

incidents of ordinariness 

blessed by the banal 

awakened gently from slumber

A number of oddities 

seemingly random 

commanding nothing 

eventually enlightened

The plodding soul 

tolling a bell 

not rung 

but sung
