Seeing Light – Spoon Jackson

Seeing light
I see darkness and light
The many shades of light
on the blades of grasses
tips glowing like ice sickles
The light dancing shadows on the
Long-fanning leaves of the palm
trees look like blond hair.
I see the darkness and light
in the many shades of the sunset
and how the smoke made the
Sun look like orange sherbet
I see the fire burning down the
mountains – licking the dry grasses
away leaving the evergreen trees
true smoke black mountains fire
burning not quite yellow or yellow
orange. Black smoke winged-tipped
with white
