The Darkness at Noon

The darkness at noon - We’ve been led to walk with a blossoming dread through streets, as if we have no will, and all the world is strangely still. We walk - no word among us said. We all had seen the sky grow red before our sun, which warmed us, fled! It only stayed with us until the darkness at noon. Our lungs can breathe. We have not bled, but we are now the living dead, for all around us grows a chill upon the earth. Gone is the thrill of light and life! We see instead the darkness at noon! For the 101 in a ROW contest -6 of PD, Linda!!!

Hi Andrea, congratulations on your win in the contest. I like the way you take us through a grim world at the darkness at noon. I don't think i have seen this one before. Glad you did get the chance to dust it down. There are always gems to find and this is one such gem. This is definitely a seven and a fav. Huga....Mike. XX

A more serious, and heavy weight poem for you Andrea. But can see just why PD chose it to be placed high. Congratulations!

In the darkest places we find the light. If only we knew where to look. We are strangers in a strange place and can't see the light. We should look inside to find the light because there is a fire that burns in each of us. A glow. The truth is a state of mind. Beautiful write and congrats on your fine win. Your the best.

Darkness you captured and shed light upon! An elusive caging of a fleeing whisper of smoke. A magician working real magic. Bravo!
