Light Show

The cold has settled in now, wrapping
itself tightly against every twig, pressing
itself deep into the soil, into the bones
of every living thing. But to think
of nothing else would guarantee
our misery. So the sky puts on
a light show to distract us, bathing
a stretch of charcoal clouds
in brilliance, sweeping white veils
across its deep blue. Here, children,
a little treat to remind you that
the moment holds far more
than you suppose.
