“Light and Shadow”

Pastel smudges draw my eyes to morning’s rise   
aligning the innocence and the essence   
of day’s promise with ease. Light dusts the trees   
with the purity of youth. Beams illume Truth   
in a precise reality that cannot be   
denied. Into the sunshine I dance sublime   
and naked in the summer’s heat. When I retreat   
to the coolness of shadows, a soft breeze blows   
across my glistening skin. I let Hope in   
wrapped in shadow and light—and all is right
