Saturday 12 September 2020


There are dark misty spaces

topped by the blackest clouds,

so that I can’t see into them.

I have always been afraid

of the monstrous beings

which may lurk there

waiting in the dark.

But now the mist 

is lifting,



The cloud is becoming thinner,

allowing the light to penetrate.

I know it won’t last,

know I have only to wait,

if I can.


now I am even more afraid,

afraid of the light,


that it may reveal

not monsters, but

the bare boards

of emptiness.
