A swirl

After I John 1:5-2:2

We observe a swirl
of ideas, or metaphors,
mixed together
until inseparable:
word, life, light.
The Word was, is, will be;
in that word was, is, will be
life; in that life was, is, will be
light, a light that splits
the darkness, shatters it
into pieces of itself, pieces
without power, a memory
haunted by what it was, is, will be:
formless and void.
