Light Fell Softly


The Light fell sofly in bands of reds, purples, and golds
On the waters it fell mingling with the ocean’s foam on wave crests
Before gliding on down sparkling each ripple
It rested on treetops brightening each leaf and frond
Then sliding on downto the sand
Glittering each granule like diamonds
Warming the small one as she sat digging her castle’s mote on water’s edge
It highlighted the clouds before catching a rideon a great golden red bird
Nestling in its feathers as he folded his wings and dove
Coming to settle next to small one
Quietly she offered him part of her loaf and cheese
And he in turn brightened her space with a song
Coaxing a smile of delight that sparkled in her eyes.
