In the dying of the light, perspective

As the day and the season
draw slowly to a close
we turn our backs on what's to come
to look at what is past
and see how what were once dark clouds
are now illuminated
by the light of what will be;
seeing now --
in a flash of perception --
that those blackest moments
provide a bright counterpoint
to the placid blue skies
we thought we wanted,
and know that what now seems dark
will also come to light
as day wears on and night rolls in.
