In a dark room a candle is lit.

Everything in that room
is at once illuminated on one side
and projects a shadow on the other.

Everything that has light casts a shadow.
Light and shadow go hand in hand.

But if the flame itself has no shadow,
Does the candle’s flame really have light?

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

Edith Warton
