Poem excerpt from Crosroads of Seasons
In the darkness of the streets, I hear the silence of the echoing memories through this once well traveled light way.
Remembering brings an eclipse over my mind, while awakening in this barren room.

Then suddenly, the light appears, but for a moment, reminding and casting a rainbow on a cloudy skyway whispering, that the presence is once again near and always having an everlasting still voice in your heart.
Once again the darkness overshadows my silently crying heart, while the morning light pierces through my window, reminding me, that another day may bring victory my way.
Surrendering to a lonely world of freedom, realizing the past weighs heavy on my still scared heart. It's time to lock away this burden, while the shadow still remains, but no longer haunts my heart in the shadows of the darkness.
Awaiting the call of morning, lightens the shadows of a once forgotten, but ever present river of pain.
