I went into the basement with bright lights.
At first it hurts my eyes and made me blind.
I close them a second to stop the pain.
Then opened them slowly and carefully.
My eyes are adjusted to the bright lights.
The room’s bright light joins with my own bright light.
The water of a slow flowing river
Looks bright or dark, depending on the sun
When the sun shines upon the clear water
It seems to sparkle brightly from within
Sometimes I think I am like that river
