Following The Light

With time light changes,

the buds will bloom,

the trees will turn green.

With time light changes;

the flowers will die,

and the river will sour.

With time light changes,

and the things that were

most important

will vanish into the late afternoon

shadows.

With time light changes;

the things we took for granted

will move away, like the water

it can’t stay the same.

With time light changes;

the focal point of the picture

will change

and then you will have to start again.

With time light changes

but unlike light, we cannot.

We stick to what we know;

yet we paint and write about the light

that we cannot touch.

With time light changes;

the lilies will glisten,

the water will sparkle.

With time light changes;

the sky will turn grey,

and the bridge will be damp.

With time light changes,

and all will be dark again.
