He Listens

He tilts his head upward
Footfalls slapping against icy pavement and cracked concrete
His eyes open against the weight of an empty sky
That pulls at branches bare, rattling without the clap of leaves

The cold cuts sharply through the clouds
Through his jacket and through his bones
Through the very sun itself
Slinking behind gliding gossamer

He drops his head
Footfalls silent beneath icy memories and cracked thoughts
Eyes closed against the weight of an empty sky
That pulls at branches bare, dancing without the clap of leaves

He listens

The Absence of Light

shadow-streams_darker

The absence of light

Branches out

Like streams made of shadows

Carving valleys into the landscape

Alluvial fans forever fixed behind warmth

Hidden from the sun

From its own creator

And as fire dives beneath the surface of the horizon

Streams converge into rivers bleeding into an ocean of darkness

Fathoms of infinity floating high above

Only to  evaporate

By a deluge of blue sky

A mirage of cerulean

Painted by a morning star
