Twilight Life


The ancient path of mud and moss
With myriad trodden stories sleeps
In paddles squashed
The stolen alms of darker skies
Are washed by heavy boots
That crunch the twigs in dying grass
With swollen feet and sinking eyes
That close
The moaning of the clouds in prose
Ashamed of steady poles – the sound
Of light in fighting colours
Finds and binds the night in sight
To follow deeper down the drowned
Abyssal journey of the Sun
In chasms lost in time and space,
But leaves the shadow of a face.
