Winter’s Cloak

“Let the dawns
come late
let the sunsets
arrive early
let the evenings
extend themselves
while I lean into
the abyss of my being

Let me lie in the cave
of my soul
for too much light
blinds me
steals the source
of revelation

Let me seek solace
in the empty places
of winter’s passage
those vast dark nights
that never fail to shelter me”
