Lifting the Veil Of Light

lifting the veil of light we found, more light, translucent
sugar snow light, light of the panoramic Easter egg
light hardened like candy on the glass

of the window as it passed, time,
with its holly berried Christmases
and the cocoa with its one glacial marshmallow steaming

wreathes around us here
it hasn't disappeared: light, lifting the veil of light
we still proceed

following the Wise Men
watching the purpled skies
for angels

glad, at home.
