DEEP DARK SOUL POET

(09/1965 / Australia)

the dark...


Again there is a clamour, an enormous din
The night grows thick the clouds grow thin
The silence enters me making me shake
The noise is frighten​ ing​ like an earthquake

The night is being loud again.
In the depths of the dark
There is a faint noise within
From somethin​ g​ lurking, unseen.

If I focus my mind,
Time'​ s​ path can be heard
Ticki​ ng​ along.

From a room down the hall;
Rustl​ es​ and creaks
Mixed with subtle murmurs
Tied along with dreams.

Music streams from a flash of a car,
Out there with bright lights,
Angry engines that rumble past.

Loude​ st, ​ though, in my mind.
Thoug​ hts​ upon thoughts.
Screa​ ming​ and fighting.
Clamb​ ering​ and pushing.

More and more.
And only once the silence enters
Does the noise in my head begin.
The dark is being loud again.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
