Light : After seeing a painting of Rembrandt

the sunrays fight it out on the window pane
banishing cold shadows to beech corners
passion kisses heat against my neck

its magnifying kindness radiates through
opaque glass, surprising me,
drawing me to turn and see:

diamonds forming out of shadows
expanding harmonies of prism, colour kaleidoscopes

the pastor’s sermon strokes in Rembrandt tones
morbidity burning in its own slaughtered light
while a congregation vanishes in the background
