The Only Thing For Certain



A corner of the curtain peeled back
to reveal a triangle of light. Night
is still mixed in with the angles
and will be for a while yet.

The light, falling on the table
and birds singing an autumn song.
Less frenetic than the full pell-mell
of spring and summer.

But despite everything,
whatever this day might bring
the only thing for certain
is that this light will keep growing.
