Distant Light

…the evidence of things not seen. — Hebrews 11:1

I look long into the sky,

peering into blue-gray

clouds, straining to see

past the nebulous, 

thick layer into calm

space, so wanting

to see the flicker-lit

night, the distant

light that happened

in the past, memory

from another day,

and I find on this night

some comfort in that —

that light travels like

hope, sometimes

unseen, but it is there

behind the clouds,

behind the thick air, 

behind this holding 

day that does

not want to end….

that light is there,

and knowing this

is enough comfort

for me.
