It travels hundreds of years to reach its destination,

only to become reflected. Deflected. Rejected.

Light, is a refugee: adaptable. Fearless. Inventive.

Having fled the war inside the helium core in a hurry,

all it could quickly grab was its warmth.

Unphased by the long journey ahead, it persists,

eventually falling into the arms of a leaf. An empty street. A smile.
