ARC OF LIGHT

Descending in an arc of light
The meteor knows its transience,
Illuminating by downfall.
This is sufficient:
The moment is complete without infinity.

The meteor, plunging, is on its way down.
Down is the only direction.
But, while it falls,
There is an arc of light in the sky.

This poem ARC OF LIGHT was first published when posted online by Hugh Cook on 2005 May 7 Saturday. Copyright © 2005 Hugh Cook.
