light + dark + undulate

the light plays over
the water, bright gold turning
liquid white at the
point of connection. there’s a
moment of quiet, soft, dark.


the water ripples,
undulating with the breeze
which comes from the south.
it’s fresh off the ice, and cold,
almost numbingly so. still.


the sun drops over
the horizon. it’s gone in
a few short moments.
the forest feels deeper now;
such are chiaroscuro days.
