lilting light

See how the shadows
from the shutter slats
dissipate on the wall
as the sun streaks
through the leaves outside
before catching the window’s face.

The sun is setting—
the light, wiser for the day’s length,
seems to be like water,
rippling at my right,
warmth to my face,
and my soul smiles.

God makes his painting
right beside me,
whose composition
comes in three dimensions,
from nature
through the window
to my home.

Lilting Light,
you are welcome here.
