Formless

18 Comments


He came with the dawn,
Early morning mist-
A hazy form:
vague nothingness,
slowly taking shape!

My long night was
nearing light-
I knew, the sun
was just behind him.

Trapped in my darkness
I could do nothing,
but wait…
Endlessly, it seemed.

I wondered.
Did he know?
Was that why he came?

And I waited.

Wondering
why, suddenly, the steps
seemed unsure
faltering-

And the mist grew thick!

Still trapped in
my darkness
I knew
I would have to burn-
so that he could see light,
and part the mist again.

Only, I hope, he will forgive me
for being formless,
when he finally gets here.

  5. That was beautiful… 🙂 I mean… Darkness… Alluringly beautiful. Doesn’t one feel that it hides something..? Something which we may want to uncover? Throw light on..? **I knewI would have to burn-so that he could see light,** – And I *just* spoke of shadows (darkness) and light… Loved it, ma’am. Peace.
