The Brevity of Light
The mountains rise,
the colors of the night-sky,
dusk, purple, pitch,
above these windswept hills…

the hills are made of light
in this brief season,
yellow and radiant

a scattered thread of heather
here and there.

We walk the slopes
and shoulders

here and there
a scattered thread of heather

yellow and radiant
in this brief season,
the hills are made of light…

above these windswept hills,
dusk, purple, pitch,
the colors of the night-sky,
the mountains rise

long after we are gone.
