Light fractured

Light fractures
On entering earth
Has a hard job
Staying whole
On hitting the atmosphere

Diffused shardsNeon
Give partial sight
Fractions of the whole
Fragment of certainty
We stand on
In the world

Refracted rays
When closed in human fists
So, empty handed
We fabricate
What we cannot own

How best reflect
Subtle shades of
Liquid light
Infinite prism?

We come up with
The neon
