Caught by Light

A strip of loose birch bark

is catching the morning rays

 

A glowing lantern

high up in the tree

slowly diminishing in light

 

Only for a few moments

it held it’s rosy gold

 

The sunlight plays

through the forest

 

Who will I catch to

hold my light

 

Once caught

we hold the memory

and will never be the same
