Finding the Silver Lining

“Liquid silver falls from the skies
Drop

by

Drop


Squeezed from the darkness above
Drops become a flowing silver river
Winding around the bend or hung on a string

Frozen in time.

A snapshot.

Gently slipping, tumbling down
But joins the mass eventually.

The darkness breaks.

Light spurts out.
Like moonlight on the water
Its golden glow illuminating
a delicate cobwebbed path
Bursting forth on the damp ground
As though its been freed, trapped before
Like a caged bird, now allowed to be free.”
