Light and Darkness


“True darkness is not only the absence of light,

but the conviction that the light

will never return.”

 from the movie, “Justice League”


May hope be our light.

So Many Words Spoken Over Us


So many words spoken over us, at times unseen

as if they gently rested

on our shoulders, whispering

into our spirits, both

hawks and doves,

so that in our peace we can

pull down every particle of grey

and black smoke


creeping in from our ruined history.

Until finally

there is enough glory

to write a poem,

pulled down

from the sky.
