swallowing darkness & birthing light

 
~
~~
~~~
it remains dark
ebon down pressing hard
silence holding dominion
fisted in a shadowy grip
still chilly
with a mere bent toward warmth
muted
noncommittal
a mood fraught with clouds
somewhere
in the unseen distance
thunder growls
low & menacing
fitful lightning slashing
lashing across indigo canvas
tracing a fading echo of bright
across the blindfolded night
it's just me
two bare feet
immersed in solitude
waiting
for the changing of the guard
when morning draws back the blanket
airing out the bed
before birdsong fills a stirring sky
and crickets seek their rest
another fresh start
enjoying the final moments of muffled silence
a door is opening...
and I'll be ready
until then...
~~~
