Dark Clusters



when loneliness
becomes a friend
and crazy lives next door

the rising past drops
circles into circles while
present rings the dark

black knots of crows
shadow slap the night
and glad leaves not a trace

Wow-- that really went over my head.

I liked it, though.

"present rings the dark," throws me, but the rest really got me. terrific images, and the picture i get of crows shadow slapping the night is just great.

That loneliness can be so all-embracing.
Wonderfully done.

Oh wow....so beautiful and deep. So much said in so few words! I really enjoyed the thinking this made me do.
