Two Chances

Two Chances

~Deana J. Tavares

Twice a day

An empty canvas

Unravels before us 

 Once again

Mornings radiant light

Unfolds

Another palette

At days end 

 

Light reveals 

All 

Ricocheting 

Between silhouettes

Steady climb 

A gentle

Fall 

 

The arc of it  

The crack 

A shift 

Reconnecting again  

Then a split

 

Skating upon water 

Patterns displayed 

Dissected again 

Trembling rays 

 

Another chance

To savor the salt

Ride the break

Mist-filled stories

Wide in wakes

 

Multiplying exponentially 

Squinting of eyes 

Occupying 

All corners

Then 

Every

Side

 

 

“Man is a part of nature and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.”  ~Rachel Carson
