Darkness Cedes

Darkness Cedes


The light fades as the sun sets.

Darkness cedes the lowered sun.

A quietness washes in as a wave.

All that is heard squirrels scurrying.

Even they know it’s eventide.


Walking along even shadows hide.

In the distance, I see a lone light.

It is too far to light my lonely path.

I hear a few rustling leaves dancing.

I feel something soft brushing my legs.


“Hello Tasha,” I say to my precious cat..

Finally home, I sit down to rest awhile.

Tasha meows a reminder to feed her.

I stand to start my second job as mom.

I heat leftovers and sit. Tasha joins me.


And darkness cedes until morningtide.


Susans Soul…
