Dark Nights Memories, 13x4’ from the ceramic abstract sculpture memory series

This sonnet accompanies the piece:

When Darkness Falls



When darkness falls, it might

Not be the dark of night—

Perhaps it is the hollow

Deeply laid, out of sight,

A lamp inside that sheds no light—

No opening to follow.

Dismiss the outstretched hand,

Trim the outsized hopes

That never had a chance to land

As eyes retreat and heartbeat drones,

Alert to squeak and bang.

Darkness shows the map of stars

The twink and glimmer of a path—

The lightfooted way at last.
