somewhere above a

somewhere above a
forest, a bird drops the seed
of a poem, and it

skims the treetops, instinctively
landing where there’s enough darkness

by the water’s edge,

by the water’s edge,
bonds become stronger, it’s true –
looking out into

the depth of an endlessly
cold darkness brings us closer

thank you for having

thank you for having
the foresight to filter both
the darkness and the

light – there are so many ways
to grow up strong and humble

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: filter

take any nocturne

take any nocturne
into that darkness with you –
opus whatever,
number whenever –
and slowly,
dial it up
until someone
counters, or the sky
arpeggios, whichever
comes first

after all this time,

in the middle

in the middle
of the night,
belonging and
not belonging
take turns
at the wheel,
driving from
one small town
to another,
practicing
exemption

from light into

from light into
darkness, i am
pulling away from
you, time
once again
loosening, earth
spinning
away, twice as fast

recommend darkness

in between sleep,

in between sleep,
darkness fingers my
thoughts, conducting
a double blind
taste test – this one,
yes, this one is
real, and
not that one
– and
there is no bias,
no preferred
treatment. even
the first sign of
morning reveals
no answers

even in the darkness, we

even in the darkness, we
reach for patterns
whether truth
or sensational
misstep,
hindsight may
be willing
to testify
