A Response to Jim Reeves’ Photo on Hopes and Dreams of Our Future

Darkness Rises

Darkness does not fall,
It rises
From where the light
Settled —
Soars to the heavens like
The phoenix,
Tossing shadows that smooth
And soften
What was brash and bright —
Giving depth
To what was shallow,
Embracing the end,
To allow a new beginning.

Darkness does not fall,
It rises.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
