AWAITING

Little candles fail
to illumine the deity
or golden dome
in the valley darkness reigns
and god too awaits light

Midnight

Whispers in the dark
the flickering of candles
outside my window
the night sky ripe with dreams (stars)
waiting to be harvested

Over d table
On2 d floor

Hides d shadows
Creeping closer
