Through the Glass

Standard

Driving beneath a canopy of clouds
along the naked treeline
turns the sun
into flashes of heat against my cheek

light and shadow
light and shadow
light and shadow

the gifts and sorrows
a matter of perspective
looking just right
through the window

  1. I love the repetition of the”light and shadow” it really captures that strobe effect of light coming through the branches while driving! The “gifts and sorrows” are a wonderful pair to the light and shadow! I really like how the opening stanza “turns the sun/into flashes”. That is delightful to read. The ending is great with the play of perspective and looking. Overall, this is a neat little piece packed with deeper meaning from the sun flashing through the branches. Well done!!! Love and light your way…
