in a certain light, unseen realms appear


sparkling, dazzling,

at times, even blinding,

so were the sun-charged diamonds

that danced upon the river waters.

moving reflections of sky above,

a mirrored wall of brilliant blue

hiding all within.

i fought to see beyond the painful light,

to glimpse the other world on the other side

beneath the surface of what seems to be.

but then a wisp of cloud drifted in

to cast a gentle shade,

and in the cooler light,

the mirror turned to window glass,

and the river's inner realm

so filled with wonders of another life,

suddenly, quite unexpectedly,


a world so different than my own,

this only life I’ve known.



The End
