 Elena's Humming Soul


Like in a moment of sophistication,

The night ramps through the runway of darkness,

Her scent, melancholy,  

i desire not—

grips my soul,

Her cape, the daunting cold, 

I know not

hits me at the core

the rustling leaves, the shadows seem

applauding her reign, but not me

and the faint, glowing streetlights 

I close my eyes

in unison with those who slumber,

wishing the morning light will come

Author's Note:

Together with my family, we went through terrible hardships early this year.
By the Grace of God through His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, we were
able to surpass the odds. The above poem is written from those experiences.
