Tonight I Took a Walk in the Dark…


Tonight I took a walk in the dark
Unstrapped the bubble of light from my head and descended
Feet first to the curb
And by turns constrained and compelled by the wind
Whispered my winding way in the dark.
And I saw the light a life emits:
Flashing digital blue
Licking red flickers
Slow orange warm glow
Encased within the glass bay windows of a city.
And tiny I
In the space between
An out of body spirit
Blown away, blown toward
The light.

  1. Beautiful Barbara. I haven’t had time to write a proper response to your beautiful thoughts since a few days before Easter. You have been posting thoughts that deserve more than a cursory response. Lovely.
