As the world darkens

Tonight, the first star
Is growing up beside the sun.
Slowly, as the world darkens
She outshines us all.


It is such a dawn

It is such a dawn
When ghostly pale fog
And thick silence converse
About life, and people
Pull their dreams heavily behind
Like a suitcase without wheels.
There is a stale sound of gravel
Evading booted feet.
It is such a dawn
When loneliness has turned
Its back on the wind
And the sight of a single
Bushy wildflower
Becomes a beacon to set
Our course to.
