Even As Night Comes

Even as night comes and darkness folds its black wings across the earth
I feel that pull down among the secret hollows,
the enfolding hands of willows bending, swaying;
a breeze flowing round the mounds and rocks,
the waters of the waters sinking out of sight;
stars blinking into those darkening shoals,
while the afterglow of that ancient star
filters the last remnants of those twilight hues…

Sitting here amid my ruins, memories and silences.

  1. Expert Wordidge and damn fine ways to put the reader in the scene

    ‘The dark did bring the shadows
    My sight faded into moonlit puddles
    A corner to hide in and shudder
    As I know daylight waits to arrive
    With its torturing illuminations
    Of all I seek to avoid when in the shadows
    When I find corners in which to hide’
