Transient Radiance

Transient Radiance

written by: Dr. Molly Joseph

 

The hanging
dew drop
on the flimsy
fragile
shoot,
defying
transience
how you
dangle in
glory
reflecting
the universe
encompassing
all…

I know
how you
emerged
outliving
the aches
and agonies
of the thick
night
saturating
its sorrows
into
scintillating
hopes…

while
you sway
and shine,
I smile…
smile in
understanding

we are
one…

on fringes
of transience
together
we weave out
radiance…
