Light: An Elegy

Light: An Elegy

A light shimmers in the fore, Joined by the hand Of song and rhythm And lambent dances Along a moonlit creek in repose.

What does it see Beyond this specter Of jaded spirits And world-weary migrations To parts hitherto untold That beckons its uncompromising smile?

From whence does its melody arise That it traverses so calmly Through dimensions and landscapes Hitherto unseen?

When will a world Left in silent agony Learn its dance And free itself from These windless vales Of stagnant tears?

A light begins to fade in the offing, Just beyond the directionless bend. As she retracts her hand To commence one more excursion

She speaks,

Gently reminding the creek That upon her return, A new song will be sung, And a new rhythm mapped out For posterity.

And the shiftless vale will blossom With a chorus of sparrows And flora bedecked with purple amaranths Heralding a new day, In which smiles are freely-given And hearts are open For the weary traveler To stop and rest awhile, Before the next journey.

Art: “Sunset at Lavacourt” Claude Monet
