a shadow of sun

there is a crack in everything,
that’s how the light gets in
Leonard Cohen in Anthem

the wall
a canvas begging for paint
blank

except for the shadow
of a maple leaf leaving the tree
and the gauzy beam

that sneaks in
under the curtain
a sign of autumn sun

touching the planet at a slant
reminding that shadows
are born of light
