Light and More than Lack of Light


I caught the band of early morning

Before sunshine gave way to clouds

A dark day, probably wet


Spring can be this way

And though we’ve had too

Much, some part of the rain is welcome

Especially against the lack thereof


Tensions between light and dark, wind and

Still, practical and useless, beautiful and

Uninspiring, although


Abstract dichotomies don’t apply so well

The light is useful, so was the dark

We need the rain; we need it to be dry

Spring and fall for life


Sometimes division doesn’t work

And the better thing to do

Leave the pairings multiply
