The gracious crucible of light
that spawned my shambling steps,
dangling that golden carrot
through a narrative
The owl glides over darkening fields,
I’m the mouse skirting its kill zone.
I duck and weave, just out of reach,
running and crawling
The view up there, it must be good,
a riot of jocularity.
But I don’t share that shade of blue,
So, I will stumble blindly through
the midnight of my storied tome,
relating a narrative so familiar
until You decide to call me
