The Darkest Hour


Invisible to eyes in daylight
the future waits, unworn.  Questions
recast as fire, fate moving
backward to the crossroads.
Neither here nor there,
meeting places
Not quite

in dreams
that circle
Seeking refuge in
hidden meanings, beyond.
But when the journey divides
into before and after, what
prediction can find the line between?


A response to Sue Vincent’s prompt this week, Flame.

    I love how this feels quiet in the middles, almost defeated, then rises again. When I look at your form I have a feeling it was intentional. Am I wrong?

    Wow!!!! Powerful. Both words and art. And it is like a steering wheel on a ship guiding through a starry night to the future

    I like the references to time, the future, predictions, and the poem itself is like an hourglass. The flames, the collage–it all seems sort of mystical, or eternal.

    The shape of the collage goes perfectly with the shape of the poem. Great work as always. N.
