A Thin Gold String of Sun

A work in progress,
this ray of light
that sifted through
the graphite,
floating up
and over
around
a thin gold string
of sun.
So much sorrow
in the smokestacks,
the whistle, wan
and overgrown
with years of rust
and greed,
with the needs
of fathers and mothers,
tenders of the children
and the gardens,
lovers.
This ray of light
a reminder
that shadows
are a sign of sun.
