journey of the quill

Journey of the quill

And there was this night of heavy rain
That swamped me outside the louvred door

rain that doused the early night to merge in
and closed out the  doors of cognition  

except for  sounds seemingly   low or loud
produced just for and about nothing.

For those who weren’t fellow travelers:
dark , cool or  why- should- anyone- care

quintessential  pricks for  quixotic heads
No one knew it when  it  went away

it was gone- for- good  for long until  birds
sang  sermons  and  the sun turned a priest  ,

from the other side of  slats of faith,
there were the mundane compacts of days

and  the day’s  punctuated  homilies,  
by  nights  heaped like municipal  waste

counting for nothing  in a journey
dotted for good measure with blarney.
