Pondering the Portal

One side to that side
Always dark from dusk to dawn
Is that why we sleep?

When we are awake
We wonder will the day break
Is this endless mourn?

And if we sleep
Will darkness do its evil?
Muting morning’s song?


dversepoets.com the prompt is “portals” the exits and entrances, where they take you, what you leave behind, how you dare to take the risk, mentally or physically. I was especially impressed with the poem

What’s Left Behind After a Hawk Has Seized a Smaller Bird Midair

  1. The dilemma – to wake or to sleep? I couldn’t help thinking of how the world is sleepwalking into disaster at the moment, but how painful it is to be awake.

    May darkness not do its evil.


  3. So valuable to ponder the portal and stay in question.


  4. I think many of us are pondering over something similar to this. “Is this endless mourn” makes me take a pause and wonder. I hope that there is daybreak beyond this long long night.


  5. Beverly Crawford says:

    This long long night presents moments of enlightenment that will perhaps linger into the new normal.


  6. Suzanne says:

    Good questions. Maybe we’d all be better off if we woke up.


  7. I think darkness does us good… actually.
