Vale of Shadows

This series was inspired by my poem “Valley of Shadows.”

Day by day  I trudge
Against the winds of time
In search of verdant pastures
Beyond these bitter shadows

Weary from the journey
I seek a place to rest
To find a rock that bears my name
To lay my heavy head 

Dreams will follow eventide
To light the darkened path
For cloistered thoughts arriving
In silent, veiled procession

Death draws near at midnight
To watch me as I sleep
And dream of sun lit meadows
Beyond this vale of shadows

Dream Angst
