Gary Glauber writes

Gravity of Light

At its core, it is a simple life.
Yet there are comfort rewards,
bed sheets of fine organic cotton,
a vista of snow-covered trees.

Things pleasing to the senses,
new perspective years provide:
adventures of appreciation,
actions of subdued reflection. 

Swirling winds like memories
create drifts of clarity,
a reverse clairvoyance
in quietude of prayer.

Essential moments of
personal significance shared
mean less to others, but passion
spreads light regardless,
a magnetized true north.

Pondering the mutual
punishments and exploits
keeps one awake nights
or serves as soundtrack
to very vivid dreams.
