Today in this light

Today in this light
       this late summer light
you look different
       the light in your hair
the light in your eyes
       today you look different
gilded by this late
       summer light
this halo of light
       that enhances
your elegance
       your beauty

Today in this late
       summer light everything
seems possible
       our joy our happiness
and not just possible
       but necessary as though
it was meant to be
       as though we were
meant to be in this late
       summer light before the last
roses fade in the approach
       to winter
