A Point of Light

This day is long as though I have two lives,
what is, and what it might become.

I am an artist, bringing color not yet seen.
Earth's landscape is my map.

Without reasonable light there is no blue,
no red, no subtle rose.

I'll trust the wisdom of that light
as cloud shapes shift behind me.

And when the branch, instead of breaking, bends,
I know that what's not lost is hiding

where memory and imagination join
and, when I see it, I'll need nothing else.
