dark-painted on looming horizon.

silently, stealthily keeps his eyes on.

each passing minute size increasing.
Small heart stands alert and viable –

The morning sun begins to emblazon the barley field.

Flickers, shinning in the still of the night.
In front all they could see was darkness,
a blackness that took over the forest.

Nightmare 4
He is amped up excited
Very eager and ready
No shaking this time
His hands they are steady

His next victims he's found
Quickly and urgent
So quick with his ok plan
This time it felt perfect

A need to get it done

Sways with the slightest wind taps 
And pothole shoves. Popeye’s signs, 
Golden shell displays, the lingering smell 
Of Premium-grade gasoline. 
The prices are Down, but our gas meter still...

Down the Hill
Slither, slither, show the way, water moving faster still
Never ever going backwards, only flowing down the hill
Water flowing down a river passing over rocks and earth
Slowly gliding to the ocean from the reservoir of birth
