9/8/16 Light

growing up in a church
I watched the light change
through the windows
stained glass colors dappling
the floors, the pews, the people
subjectively messing up sense
and clear-eyed objectivity
and as the light moved
I learned new lessons
found layers I had not known existed
and as I learned to love
I found those colored layers
walking through the world
what could not always be seen from the front
would make their grand appearance
when the light moved ere so slightly
suddenly the angel's white wings
were aglow with purple
