There is a crack, a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in.
As a shell covers the fruit; night precedes day.
It is from within darkness that light emerges.
This is a world that starts in deficiency, in night. In this world, perfection can only come after imperfection. Morning can only come after evening. Light can only come after dark. Absence leads to presence. Emptiness becomes filled. Night becomes day.
Darkness becomes Light.
“And there was evening, and there was morning, one day.” (Genesis 1:5)
