4/15/15 Poem: Song


by candlelight

alone in the dark


the framework of me

while looking at frames

through frames of my own,

searching for light,

in the dark

all alone.


the crickets join in,

offering their tune,

the one that remembers

the summer in June

– that summer’s gone

leaving June far behind

the cricket’s play on


that’s okay

I have the stars

I tell them my fears

alone in the dark

here in the dark

one by one in the night

the crickets play on
