Quiet evening under the rain.
Promise of brighter mornings.
It won’t be long before swifts
fly in the sky again.
The garden is teaching
and I am learning
in the arms of Summer
three lessons in lightness.
Silent stars. Silent truth. Silent God.
The longest Day always gives more
than the shortest Night received.
This is the same way Love extends
through Time and over all the world.
