Author’s Note: I played with the ninefold form again this week. Of the two I did in ninefold, this is the one I like better. I will publish the alternate later in the week. Please visit Ninefold Dragon’s blog–he’s much better than I! 🙂
Darkness descends on sleepy country,
Heavy, torpid, unmoving at rest.
From solitary slumber death drops.
Hopeless, empty, longing not fulfilled…
Constant searching never finds a peace…
Alone in a crowded sea of men…
Empty earthen vessels cannot flow
When human connection fails to be
And the divine is hidden from view.
