Silent Darkness


in tropical cay surround by black horizon — sudden deflation
silent darkness throughout the empty beach a lightning and a thunder fade into nothingness

    Ruben. I could not sleep after only five hours, so I am back here now for a wee bit. Here is your fortune: Saturday's child works hard for a living. (I have never been able to figure out if that is a good one or bad one. At least it shows good character, which you are loaded with!)

    Ruben, i love the title... the image sits still while the fright vanishes away... i have never seen a black horizon.. Your contest entry has that dark beauty i love in poems..and i don't mean that in a dark way... i like the way you express the silence at night... good luck in the contest..always..pd

    Smile ˜ Tis So Gloomy My Dear Beautiful Ruben ˜ I Find Myself Often Trying To Imagine I Might Say This Type Of Emotional Moment Perhaps ˜ I Know Countless In This Place & Time Deal With Such Everyday ˜ My Heart Loves & Bleeds For Them Yet If I Were To Liken This Truth Unto Anything Specific Then I Would Point Unto, Christ Jesus, Groaning In His Spirit At The Broken Hearts Of Others While Even Knowing That Soon, His Beauty, Would Be Bringing Lazarus Back Unto Life * Good To See You Again My Dear Friend ˜ Love Always, John!:) ˜

    black horizon/silent darkness/empty beach.. and nothingness... A very strong feeling of solitude transmitted through 'your thunder and lightning' striking in distance- Ruben
