Sunlight and shadows

This last day of the year

Began so bright and beautiful,

So calm and full of promise.             

Soon though, winds arose

And high, cirrus clouds pushed in

As sunlight turned to shadow

And shadow turned to sunlight.

This day reflects well the year

Barely hanging

By one calendar page,

A year filled with

Its interplay of light and darkness,

Its days of joy and days of mourning.

So, at year’s end,

We brace ourselves for the shadows

While always turning our faces

Toward fleeting sunlight.
