Shades of Light

Shades of Light

In driving mist

A dark lilac daylight

I walk a stone pathway

Over aching earth

In search of the sea

It is a mysterious light

An intensely intimate

Sense of timelessness

And I wrestle

With thoughts

Drawn from the silence

Then I see

A face in a mirror

From my dreams

Open eyed and curious

Time stands still

Against the stained glass window

Of time

I see shades of light

And shadows falling

From an open casement window

Fragments of the past

And I tremble

At the tones of memory
