|I want to share a poem that goes well with this one!!
“Silent Tears Runs Freely”
I walk through my front door
And switched on the light
And in a panicked way
Fireflies and mayflies buzz around
Like they do around a light by night
I look deep into the night
Beyond the light it is very dark
I can hear hundreds of crickets and cicadas
Rubbing their wings unseen
Producing a clamorous chorus
I smile…knowing they are at ease
There is nothing out there to hurt them
I am just staring out
At a absolute black sky
I pull my coat closer to my body
And embrace myself
Trying to make me feel warmer
I listen to the crickets screeching
And I think about my disturbed life
Within the walls behind me
And I can’t help it
The tears crowd the crickets
And in darkness
Silent tears runs freely

|I love the night but after being out there for a bit I start thinking how darkness is an excellent cloak for evil-doers. With that thought, I abandon my communion with the stars and the sky and hurry inside where I lock out all of the treasures of the night. A sense of security waves over me as I turn the deadbolt and secure the shades. What a shame it is. As a child, I would sleep on the porch many a summer night and never worry about my safety. Gone are those days when freedom and security were just a given and not something we ever has to think about. Wonderful write, Bill. Thank you for taking me on that short walk down memory lane.
