Okami Kamikaze

Rookie (1991 / Oklahoma)

Darkest Dawn


Sunlight fading
Stars shine
Wind whispers
Wolves cry

Branches sway
Owls call
Moon rises
Shadows crawl

Thunder rumbles
Lightning flashes
Roses rise
From the ashes

Illusionists, our minds are
Players of the smallest pawn
Wishers upon distant stars
But night is the darkest before the Dawn

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
