marking against the dark – January 5

1.5.2015

friends come over

and stay

the talk goes on

and on

and on

and on

 

amidst quiet gaps

we stare into the

Christmas tree

lights like

flame flickering

in the campfire

 

where stories are

told and we sit

in tribal memory

gathered

 

silence as part

of the together

the on and

on of our voices

marking

against the dark.
