In the dark

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.”
― Mary Oliver

in the dark

yule tide lost,
in shards
of oblivion,
darkened waters
unhinged amphibian.

burning trails to the brightest star,
resonant heartache
sojourns on mars.

crystal tears are
hollow grief,
merely aberrations!

far from earth
time traveller adrift
holy season
withholds her gifts.

praying for this aeon
to end,
so my broken heart can mend

craddled in sleep
to dream of heaven,
and wake in tones
of untold blessings……
