NaBloPoMo Day 10 - Looking for Light in All the Wrong Places

Today's poem came from the same prompt as Day 3 about sources of light. 

Light from Darkness

Out of darkness
Comes pure light,
Bursts of brightness
Shooting across synapses,
Containing thoughts, ideas, dreams
Like bright candles
Or explosions in chemistry
With fertilizer and saltpeter,
Or August 6, 1945
Over Hiroshima,
And the enlightenment that came
And the new ideas,
Some of which will become reality.
Most will remain, however,
Simply stars in synapses.
