A Solar Illusion

A Solar Illusion



Seen beyond winter branches

and the sudden tree space

carved by the crashing storm,

gleaming as though drawing

deep down into itself

the distant sun’s hot light,

a silvered lance spears a

crucified man hanging

tall upon the far hill,

slow arms rotating, as

relentlessly as those

standing long in the cold

waters of the river

pursue hidden prey and

reel in their fated fish.
