Lightbulbs

I’m grateful beyond words to Spillwords Press for including my story “Two Point Creek” among their Featured Posts, and would love to hear your thoughts on it. The link to the story is https://spillwords.com/two-point-creek/

Now to today’s poem!

The lights are never off in that kingdom upon the hill

They shine everlasting over streets that cannot see them

and cry out for something more beyond a voice in the dark

speaking to a world that has long ceased listening

but waits for a reason to reach out to the horizon

and take back what the night stole

Still we grope in the dark for a handhold

as the cliff face crumbles away beneath us

but it’s a steel-sky morning that dawns this day over paradise

where something walks in shadow that will be seen

when the first rays of light spill over

into streets flooded by the ones in charge of changing the lightbulbs

I want to thank once more everyone who has supported my writing so far. I hope this is the first of many stories to be published, and I’ll certainly keep trying my best to make that happen. Thank you (:

Cheers!
