Sara in the light
I wrote this poem in 2016 after reading online that scientists
had discovered that human DNA emits light.

Sara L Russell, 10/10/16 So if we are light beings, then is the aura a fountain of white diamond fire reflecting the sun, dancing in the air in a million drops of exploding starlight from the seventh universe. If we are light beings, we are beholden to shun the darkness. Always shun the darkness, for it is full of the shadows of djinn; those shadow people know your comings and goings, behold, they are legion, they hunt the starlight children fly like a moth to the light; since it holds only the luminescence of love. We are light, we are strong, we are wingbeats of angels, we are the blameless abiders of law from our leaders, like a million dancing raindrops, we can weather the maelstroms, holding the light as a feather; since it is fragile and needs our belief. And if we are light beings, being lighter than air or arias, then is the aura like haloes of sunbeams reflected in sea; only then we are free to ascend in the spirit of freedom, being the love light and keepers of tranquility.
