Torchlight

The words were handed down
over space and time
torch to torch
lamp to lamp.
In the darkness
the words were carried
person to person
and flamed forth
when one person reached
another person.
Still so beautiful
whatever the language!
Flames of tongue
reach out.
Whether whispered
or in unison,
whether read silently
or aloud,
words find flame.
Darkness fell
and the word
set the world
on fire.
