Glimpses of Things Present

Tall standing plant fall shadows
to the lamp that does embrace it,
woodstove enfolds the wood
in the luminous grasp of fire.

Stew cooks on stovetop,
chickens roost
under the canopy of darkness,
time is carried forward
mirrored in the hands of ticking clocks
while daylight waits for
morning to retrieve it.
