‘ Twas dark, cold
I am scared
scared to death
I could die
fear of the unknown
of not knowing
the stillness of the air
could suck even the sound of the wind
the trees seemed not to rustle
tensed for what was to come
a moment when God seemed
to readjust the world
the colors changed
the air didn’t move
the sounds were muted
the sky was empty
everything was the same
the world stopped
for that single flicker of light
we are still waiting
the world is still waiting
for a single flicker of light
May we all find our single flicker of light amidst the pandemic. We pray. We hope. And we believe.
For Sadje’s What do You See https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2020/05/25/what-do-you-see-31-25may-2020/
(For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a road leading towards a dwelling in the forest. It is hidden in fog and surrounded by tall trees. A light is shining brightly out of the window of the house.)
Bleak, sad, and gloomy,
It’s that little ray of light,
Springs hope to our soul.
My thoughts and prayers are for those killed and injured in U.K tonight…
Looking thru the corner of my eyes;
A wonderful vision of a soul passing by.
Needing to catch a glimpse for it flies;
Indelible moments don’t know why.
Realizing this may be gone forever;
Hide not the desire meant.
Knowing this will end sooner;
You’re special though for a moment.
A little ray of light
In a dark gloomy night
As a hint of hope
Dazzles thru in scope.
“I shine through and smile”
A clouded day
Filled with stray
A cue of sunshine
May come in time.
” I look upon in glee”
You are my happy memory of the past,
The joyful moment of the present,
And the hope and promise of the future..
a writer writes..
never dies. ..
yes that’s right….and that’s the reason why I am back.
Oh so damn
To whom I run?
And make me like fun?
I am sad and lonely
Alone, in this dark alley
I will tell you I need a time
Go out wonder, explore and be fine
I can’t, you think this is where I should be.
I write a cue
That so you might know
I am hurt in deep woe
Writing didn’t make it go
You think I suck should never do
Dark alley is where my place to be
Eternally damned forever muted.
And in great hate
I run for refuge
To your smile oh so huge
I run unto you no more
I can’t find my way through your door
You shut them leaving no air to fill
This dark alley forever my soul will.
