The Silence of Sunshine
by Candace Armstrong

Shadows on the trail
stretch to unseen places
like thoughts of troubles
amid the daily news.

Sentinel pines shelter
the layered forest floor,
scent the fresh breeze,
cushion sounds of nature.

Sunlight intrudes upon shade
first dappled, then strong
like hope intrudes upon despair
first faint, then mighty.
