Objects, and the Distance Between Them

With each passing day
The light grows
And the shadows fade
Into corners
And objects
Scattered

There is no shame in being alive
There is no reason to fear
Anything
Can happen at any time

Patterns play
And colors move
Far above
While great fires
Burn below
In between
Lies a world of possibility
Ripe with potential
And growing daily

Looking up
I can see
Great voids
Dotted in beams
Of time
And history

What am I?
