The rains of the early morning
left a coat of damp on the deck wood
and the now thawed ground.
The branches, still bare, glistened.
The air had a strange quality, the light polarized,
drawing me out with my phone to try to capture it.
Light through shadows, colours splashed across the clouds
this is how I have been sensing life lately
and all I see is beauty
and I am learning, bit by bit
deeper in my spirit
without the darkness
we can never see the light
