There was a moment when candles could burn
without watch o’er the wax as it would wane.
Now we snuff them out as blackouts return,
lackluster leaders denying all blame.

Bottled sunlight can warm a home or two.
With invest, sparks catch and ignite us all
to a cosmic cure beyond what we knew.
Through innovation, some rise to the call.

Crystalline framework capable of more,
inverted and enforced with elements.
Simply put, this electrifies the norm
and brings life to a solar resurgence.

Will the candles dance with ease again soon?
Will we be wishing on the rising moon?

Word of the Day Challenge; Spark
