New Appearance

New Appearance

late afternoon
sun descending
yellowing rays
strike my face warmly

through the enormous tree 
in our yard

leaves light up greenly
in reflection 

and now something else!

self-originating sparks
of brilliant sharp white light
scintillating cascades of light leaves
appearing just for a moment
as the fading sun creeps down

what tree is this
now revealing itself
ever so briefly

in its disappearing?
