What Light through Yonder Skyline Breaks, Central Market, Valencia, Catalonia, Spain

Dimming Light

The light which skylight glass admits
Be grey and dour as such the day commits
While just as dim our life in quarantine submits
Then random seem the ones for whom disease remits

Their darkest hour
To bed confined
For none the power
To stall the march of death’s decline

And so alone
Souls pass away
While not a hand
Is offered they
But latex glove
The touch at end of earthly stay

A Glimmer Beyond the Surreal, Golden Gate Bridge, From the Marin Headlands, San Francisco, California, United States of America

Glimmer ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #225

I come to
At the shadowy peak
Of surreal darkness
Above a world both familiar
And utterly strange

Shrouded beacon
Reaches into the murk
Whisper of stifled radiance
Beckons

Illuminates
A serpentine road
Beginning and end uncertain

Strike out for the unknown
Keep faith the road reaches the bridge

Hopeful glimmer beyond

Viewpoint, Pacific Coast Highway, Southern California, United States of America

Corona

I watch them
Photograph them
And the vast world
Beyond us all
Which makes us all seem
Such little things

I watch them
And wonder if they notice me
Or if I’d remember them
Without this photograph
Each of us in our discrete worlds
Beyond each other

I watch them
And know we’re all connected
Not just in that spiritual sense
But in the sense that one small event
In a place far far away
Can touch us all
