Witness Ash

These hills feel colorless

the silence over them eerie

as though at any moment the screams will start

and so too the laughter 

of those who seek out shadows

At the mouth of a cave lies ash and bone

remnants of a call to witness

what walks in the night

and crawls in the light of day

Are you superstitious? If so, about what?

  1. I like the “laughter of those who seek out shadows!” Superstitious here about… everything and taking away any negative energy powers of words by knocking on wood three times and throwing invisible salt over my shoulder. Thank you for posting and for the audio
