Darkness up above

Darkness up above

A Poem by Joshua Smit

A dark cloud flies,

high a bove.

It casts a shadow

across the land


Murky dark,

Things unclear.


is wiped away

Fearsome rule

Rides across the skies


The darkness

is cold.

The darkness

is hard.

hope, is hardly felt


Strong winds whip

across the land.

Darkened couds

dragged across the sky


Darkened blight, 

caught in flight.

hope, has been restored

well hope was restored, after all that darkness

This is my favorite so far. it tells a lot in the poem and it has such great detail that it felt like I was there watching your thoughts while you wrote this. Great job.

Sparse prose that conveys so much detail and meaning in so few words.
