Night and Day

Eyes open to darkness
The room, heavy with silence
Bears down
In the murky hours before dawn
Tentacles of fear creep up the spine


Dawn breaks
The room, filled with light
Opens the eyes to promise
Fear retreats into dim corners
Resolve returns

Pam, you are so right--breathe, breathe.
And after the darkest hour of midnight, dawn comes.

Been there, felt that! The morning brings such sweet relief doesn't it? We just have to breathe and hang on until the morning.

That picture is incredible. The poem captures those hours that are so cruel and lonely. The promise of daybreak is our salvation. Wonderful post, Pam.

pam, you are an inspiration in the way you intentionally transform your fears and shadows into something positive. REally strong words.
