"Ezers deg," oil painting, Viestarts Aistars

The possibilities dazzle:
where there was darkness,
there is sudden
if transient light.

Perhaps not so sudden.
A slow seepage, a backward bleeding,
wounds that some days
seem healed, and others
a raw gash of despair.

Yet hope stands a stubborn
if lunatic guard.
Every morning redeemed
and newly armed.

At first light,
your sleeping face
in childish innocence
next to mine.
