We Are One

A candle in a lantern burns against a dark set of window panes.

Never has it been more true than now:
We extinguish this flame,
But the sparks within us remain alight.
From each of us, in our supposed solitude,
The signals buzz and hum, sparkling through space one to another,
Connecting us invisibly
But palpably.

We are one.
And from every window,
Our light shines.
