A Hope

Oh sister death, oh sister night,
I’ll seek your hold
at last bright light.
And when times come
that we three part
your echo still
will ring my heart,
and I will feel
nor ill nor fright
in the cisterned well
of death and night.


Draft draft draft poem for Kerry O’ Connor’s micro poetry prompt on Real Toads based in part on Gustave Klimt and Walt Whitman, both favorites.  I am sorry to have been so absent; a busy time.  Photo is mine, from the Museum of Pre-hispanic Art of Mexico (collection of Ruffino Tamayo) in Oaxaca, Mexico.
