DARKNESS AND BEYOND
Children living in megacities
Hong Kong, Singapore , New York
and Shanghai may miss the chance
to know darkness, for they are all
blinded, polluted and conditioned
by artificial light and brightness.
Total darkness, where own body
not seen, no space, no direction,
silence, stillness, solitude,
aloneness and time of a different kind.
Accommodate and adjust, use other senses,
or fear and negative thinking arises.
We are addicted to bright and light;
in darkness, stare at a starry night.
