The Voices (for deverse-what a difference one hour can make)



The Voices


The voices
no longer distracted
by long stretches of sunlight

I revel in the short days
so much to do before
nightfall.

Days slip away
in a whispered hush
I, soul inspired
reach into the dark
confines of twilight

Between the failing
light and dreaming

Words come softly
 in the silent hours

as I try to shape them
into ghosts who gently
whisper they have a reason.

  1. I enjoyed reading your process ~ As the night becomes longer now, I too reach into the dark confines of twilight ~ Ghostly or not, let the words speak ~

  3. smiles...i think as poets we give meaning to those ghosts in our sharing of them...of letting the voices out that live inside us...smiles.
