Immanence

August 23, 2017

 

Stillness announces
its approach

through the willows
in the marsh.

No mosquitoes.
No music of frogs.

Everywhere a listening.
Something is coming.

The tom cat sniffing
for kittens in the hay.

Grain dust rising
in the busy elevator.

Black clouds sprouting
silently on the horizon,

churning, building,
sickening with green.

Immanence is spreading
across our earth today. 

An unholy darkness is coming,
strong as a god.
