Walk the road


Walk the road at night
wilderness road
wilderness night
darkness canopied
by stars, night sky
wilderness night sky
stars emblazon without
lighting the road 

pause
stop
gaze upward
reach 

cut
fingers on the stars
blood
drops on the road
wilderness road
wilderness night

The voice of one crying in the wildernes
finger pointing
to stars declaring
blood moon sharing
prepare ye the way of the LORD

The beauty of the stars transposed with the cutting and drawing of blood is a complelliing image for me. Wonderful piece, Glynn.

Favorite stanza has to be last:

"cut
fingers on the stars
blood
drops on the road
wilderness road
wilderness night"

Enjoyed the read.
