Light Dancing

Light Dancing
by Charlotte-Anne Allen

Light dancing on splashes
of gold, red, and orange
beckons to passers-by.

Greens and browns
wave their fronds,
seasons past and to come.

Evening’s chill
brings thoughts of tomorrow,
as time tolls; prepare!

Day’s warmth
welcomes memories
of life, laughter, and tears.

And so we dance,
welcoming light’s hope,
in quiet contemplation.

And so we dance,
resting sorrow
in those swaying boughs.

And so we dance,
for life’s joys
in our Creator’s being.

Light dancing on splashes
of gold, red, and orange
beckons to passers-by.
