I live my days
in the great palette of light
from the Creator
who sees all. 

in the early morning light; soft
just dawning, new beginnings

in the mid-day light; bright, 
exposed, nowhere to hide

in the late afternoon light; golden, 
blessed with softness and forgiveness

in the midnight light; of moon & stars, 
glowing orbs of sparkling wonder

As God's light unfolds through my days
I am visible.

To God, to you, to myself.
