Pictures of light
The shadows form a lattice on the wall
The wall that glows in afternoon light
Light which picks out the many-coloured bricks
Bricks that stand so tall against a fearless sky
Sky of a bright and everlasting blue
Blue that will nonetheless fade...
Fade like the shadows on the wall.
Not quite a poem?
A girl and a boy walked over the bridge
and the air around them glowed
while the wind whipped past a lonely bus-stop.
a fraction of the whole:
fine filigree twigs against a liquid sky,
brittle being in the immutable immortal.
