A Certain Slant of Light

i see you in a certain slant of light, a glimpse of tousled hair and a sleepy grin in the graceful radiance of a fresh spring morning; or a flash of skin, kissed golden, sun-drenched and warmed by the lazy beams of a sultry summer afternoon; or in pensive silhouette against a blazing autumn sky, painted red and gold and orange as evening claims the waning day; or washed in the cold blue light of a dying winter’s day, your eyes reflective pools of twilight chill and snow and ice. you live in every slant of light, in every hour of every day. you’re everywhere except here

beside me.

(This was written for my upcoming novel Sundown, the third book in The Devil’s Mansion series)
