Valley of Shadows

Post No. 836


Valley of Shadows


Brighter light brings darker shadows

darker blacker at the corners of the world

map as it curls towards the warm

candle flickering on the saucer

dripping wax down its length

growing ever shorter—

time passes and the candle shrinks

back into itself while shadows lengthen

deepen as light fades—

and the candle breathes

its last



*but the sun’s rays harnessed

trapped in an empty jar

leaves no use for candles any more

Silence is Silver


Silence is silver,

Gold is too brash

As the sound of cymbals

Will clash in the silvery

Silence of the moon,

And soon you will hear

Silence breathe –

You can catch its breath

If you listen hard enough

And the breath of peace

Can cloak the world

If we only believe…

White Noise


Lying peacefully in the dark

…Soaking up the white noise,

Listening to the earth breathe,

…Softest rustling in the trees,

Gentle twitters of the birds

…As they settle down to sleep,

The sharp crack of a small twig

…Magnified a thousand-fold

In the stillness of the night.
