Morning light

Posted on: 29 April 2021

Winter in Bayacas, Spain

Shafts of morning light
Cut through chiaroscuro skies

Restless clouds swirling
Over frozen peaks

In stillness I witness
Sacred forces shapeshift the sky


Into infinite insignificance
The paradox of being human

As I glimpse
The imperceptible
Divine power
That dances
All elemental beings

The awakening sun
Kisses my icy cheeks

Melting the illusion
That we were ever
At all.

Morning light
