Painted Light

Backlit, Photo by Margaret Mair

The horizon
Surrounds you
In a cosmic hug,
And you see
Painted light’s drama
Become real.
The sky’s dome
Fills with sunlight,
With star-spattered darkness,
With moon’s glow.
Sunrise and sunset
Paint the air
Around you.
Clouds and haze bend,
Refract, reflect,
Hide, curtain, reveal
Falling shafts
Of light.
