darkness blows like wind

darkness blows like wind

the warmness of the day

brings laughter to children at play

old men and women lay as they yawn and stretch

under covers of comfort in the coolness of the night

burning logs in the hearth smoke, pop and sizzle

until they become glowing coals

growing dimmer as each hour passes

it’s outside where darkness blows itself like a stormy wind

surrounding every unfilled space like a black oozing water.
