Light's Effusion

Light splashes my eyes as the moon seems to sense
I’m here. Effusion  shows me its suspense
And its divine effect on me. Is my love seeing it too,
As it grips us, traps us, deep in effervescent blue?
When I think of Hanukah, and all it means to me.
Eventually I’ll realize my inner dreams. Will he?
