The Slant Light

Later that fall...

            February  2016


She Fuses The Slant Light
with forest mist and explains
herself before I could ever
read her distant earthly gaze,
her heavenly take on the view.

Despite her words it was not
death she brought me in the
dying light, but that slant of
insight learned in adolescent
years in disregard of tears.

Knowing the song of human
being, she made her rainbow
covenant with me in slant rays
striking the chord that holds
the key to all subtle things.

Fixed in deep shadow her
firm inner breath promised
me to come my latter days,
as verse, a tome, as poems
all my own, to stay with me
