Where the shadow falls

Where the shadow falls
can tell you where to look for light.
Those cracks and crevices
would stay black
without light to show the way
gild curves you’d never see
had dark not shown their edges.

Study your light
to learn your shadows,
make them part of what you see,
those shades of darkness,
because shadows only hurt you
when you close your eyes.
