the sun in the fall.

there’s something about the way the sun
hits in fall-
there’s something about the clarity-
the opaque fullness of the light-
that cleanses me-
there’s a mystery in that light-
a question waiting for an
answer-
it’s the starting line for the road
ahead-
the green light-
the reason-
it pushes me gently-
like a parent nudges a willing
child-
it fills me-
like a freshly drawn breath-
it becomes me-
and i beam with it-
bright,
and clear,
and calm-
i move and it fills just enough
of my shadow to let me know
that there’s more to me
than what’s visible-
there’s a clarity yet to be discovered-
a mystery-
a question-
there’s something about the way the
sun hits in the fall-
it’s the starting line for the road
ahead*
