Stand Down

O Dark Night

what is this new thing

that rolls and tumbles me about

likes stones in ocean waves


and abandoned?

O Darkest Sky

why this wind and fury

carried to some tempest place


like kites are torn from clasping hands and

whisked away?

O Darkest Days

where do you hide eternal

in furied winds and waves

and fleeting hopes?

Come from your hiding place

take your stance

on guard, challenged. uncertain.

and in a moment


The Light that rises

slays you all.

Stand Down
