DARK EYED LADY

DARK EYED LADY

An instant connection
with richness and light
that’s deeper than centuries
and warmer than life

Though if death’s darkness
is as welcoming as this
no wonder people hurry
to sink into that bliss

An though I’m pretty sure
I’m not ready to be dead
I’d like to sit by those waters
and rest my weary head

And drop pebbles of my poetry
just to watch the ripples spread
