Keeping Company

Keeping company in the dark

our eyes grow accustomed

to each other’s shadows.

 

It was shades of gray all along

with shapes less fearful

for familiarity.

 

Let us not be forced

into harsh, unwelcoming brightness

but wait for a more gentle dawn

together.

Go Inside

Go inside when your light is fading

Withdraw and brush off the dross of the day

When dusk falls but fails to fill you with wonder

Take shelter within and pray in your way

 

Go inside when your warning signs flicker

When shadows warn that the dark soon will come

Take care to notice the limits around you

Gather what matters and make your way home
