Rabat Skyline, Gozo — photograph by author

Truth arrives intermittently,
like the sun breaking through the clouds
illuminating the sea below;

on balconies above narrow streets

through doors set in old stone walls

with a cat at sunset

in the softness of late shadows on ancient stone,

as silent as the wind on the sea far below.

Small moments of clarity,
as through a circle wiped in a dusty window,
I see.
