The Colours of a Life

We can't predict the colours of a life,
or how they will distribute over time,
but we can learn to trust that some balance will be struck,
that the darkness will be tempered by the light --
if not in quantity then potency:
just as the crescent moon glows bright 
in a dark November sky,
or the colors streaming from the sun
intensify as day steals into night.
