i am often reminded 
by things i see

that power dwells 
in simplicity

“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

considering "exposure"

to see what is hidden
in shadows
(or underexposed)

is frustrating
at best

why not try 

simply bring more light
into that which is
murky or gray

and i daresay

you will find a new way
of seeing

setting and rising

it was a time in her life
when the blinds were drawn
and the doors locked tight

but on sunday afternoons
she rode her bike
to the edge of town

where she watched the sun
go out of sight
and the stars appear

through the dark
of night

"I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
