Darkness Saturates

Darkness saturates, surrounds Palms
Gales force winds whip_ glass door
Shakes with the gust, lights slowly glide 
Across ocean or shore

The wind brings mixed emotions
Sounds of surf, trees sighing
Bring a relaxed peace but also
Fear_could get worse_storm bring

Most all situations seem worse
In nights deepest darkness
But when dawn cracks the horizon
Rising sun fear undress

Thank you, God for the early morn
When quiet rules the scene
Peaceful time to commune, hear your
Call, on you learn to lean

    Yes, we all need to learn to lean on Him...that would benefit everybody! I especially love the line, "Rising sun fear undress" now that is an incredible line my friend! What a powerful poem this is, I really enjoyed the delightful way your presented this semi-dark write! There is the hope of, and the rising of, the sun within the poem so I could not call it a dark poem! This is a fascinating piece, Great Work!!
