From a Distance

Layer upon layer
of darkness creates
a shadowed vision of the world
as storm clouds gather

One dark cloud
drawing darkness to itself
yet still one seagull glides
through endless skies

while there - a flash on the horizon
but a split second of lightning hurled
is not enough to show
the clarity of forms that grow
in shadows 'neath the thunderheads

yet in the distance still I see
bright sunshine flowing down
and from a distance
the totality of light and dark
are one . . .
