Darkness Fleeting

The depth of your inkwell

the breadth of your pain

where life springs eternal

again and again


To suffer the moment

in timeless refrain

releasing the freedom

removing the stain


Each diamond unpressured

betrays like the night

whose darkness is fleeting

and gone with the light


Your quill reaching deeply

for what came before

and what lives forever

—in words evermore


(The New Room: May, 2022)
