Like this little one’s incandescent wing
Life already shines brightly
Though we do not heed it
Though we do not allow it
To permeate its existence
in this world full of writ and developmental strife
It would be enough
For us to live incandescently happy
If we gave the rest of life
The attention and space
For an everlasting debut
