Light on Black

(Image by the author)

I will not tread upon your words

Whose worth is in these hills and lakes

Where golden flowers charmed the breeze

That carried you to greatness

But armed with eyes of fingered glass

Which sense and frame intensity

I reach into the now of gold

To capture black’s propensity

To frame in light what lies beyond

And host a soul that only

Reveals, concealed, the single light

Of daffodil that conquers lonely
