Light Enters a Blue Vase

For Lucille Clifton

Look for light the poet tells us.
Try to see any star.
Within the dark there's grace.
Look in the eyes of people you don't know.
Try to see any star,
the way light enters a blue vase.
Look in the eyes of people you don't know.
There is always a spark somewhere.
Light enters a blue vase
and the glow fills something inside you.
There is always a spark somewhere -
it takes faith to see.
Look for light the poet tells us -
the glow fills something inside.
It takes faith to see -
within the dark there's grace.
