current situation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

some  manage to stay afloat

while others watch safely from the shore

in that odd space

that’s not quite winter

but not yet spring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

rare moments of clarity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 that day by the lake

 quietly absorbing the color and light

 

 

 

 

 

on the surface

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Light plays on the
dark surface of the lake. Each afternoon
your shadow walks beside you on the wall,
and the days stay long and heavy underneath
the distant rumor of the harvest. One
more summer gone…”

 

~ Dana Gioia

 

 

 

 

 

 

lakeside light

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Our job is to record, each in his own way,

this world of light and shadow and time

that will never come again

exactly as it is today.”

 

 ~ Edward Abbey
