Light Hearted — Poem By Diana Durham

I met Diana Durham April 2008. Her poetry is beautiful. Her spirit is irrepressible. Here website is here. She emailed this poem a few days ago. Loved it.

Light Hearted

the molecules of glass
match the frequencies of light

which is why we have windows
and not dense dim rectangles
of other matter
to look through darkly

and how we can see, while still
indoors, the grass and green leaves
of gardens;

when we go outside it is the same
but unframed, larger, wider
views of plane-trailed skies.

so is our heart the framer
of all clear sight, its frequencies
know light and that something
larger lies beyond

which is why when they match
we no longer take ourselves
too seriously, seeing that
light always makes us lighter.
