Light and Dark

What fear makes

your hand tremble

and your heart hammer

for what is hidden from

sight

and has the

power to keep you 

awake

in the early 

morning minutes
when there is a chill

in the air

and a feeling

that you are

alone

in all 

the world?
In the darkness

you must remember 

that

the sun will rise

again

and with it

the anthem of the

wakened rooster

and the 

morning chorus

of crows. 
When light

slowly seeps across

the indigo sky

it is easier 

to breathe and hope

that all will be

well. 
But, it is in the

darkness

and the wisdom of no light
 that

trust is 

born.
