By the Roadside

So many eyes peering out of the walls

watching together by the roadside

the passing dreamers going home

the ones who chose now

to stay and watch the sunset

across the long and winding trail

Fear the dark, what has not yet come

what looms just out of sight waiting

gnashing teeth in the night

ready to devour, to consume

or to breathe in the light of truth

rise with it out beyond the clouds

and send it in cascades down

alongside falling starlight

I guess this is somewhat of a response to yesterday’s post. Sort of maybe.
