LIGHT AND SHADOW

 

The innards

From the hanging animal

Fell from the hanging carcass

Into the wheelbarrow

 

Inside the child

Something shattered

As shards of filtered sunlight

Peeked through boards of the barn

 

Red blood ran

Out over white

Remnants of the loss

Remain forever

 

Meaning

As a crystal clear stream

Runs over the hands and through the fingers

Spilling and offering the day´s truth

 

The light filled sword cuts deeply into the rich dark earth

Carving a large circle

Then a triangle

Then the blade is lovingly wiped clean

 

They are here

Everywhere

Light and shadow

Always together

 

Forever apart
