Light and Shade


Sunlight shining through sequoias, Muir Woods: photo by Richs5812, 5 January 2007

Is it ocean sound or wind in the big dark trees
Or is it simply time passing in my mind
And not crickets but car tires hissing by?
Days, nights full of spectres. Light and shade
No longer so easy to keep apart, the dark
Parts invading the bright parts making gray
This moment, always just a moment away
From that moment, the moments bleeding
Into one another until at last they stop.
