Darkness.

The man stood in the dark,
Cloak as black as night,
His eyes stars in the darkness.
In the deep courtyard,
Barely noticeable,
A shadow in the night,
A flicker by candle light.
No more than a breath from the breeze,
A silent wave caressing the shore,
A mere flutter from a butterflies wing.
The silent footprints in the sand,
The muted passing of a cloud.
He flaps his cloak,
A birds wings as it tentatively flies away.
Concealed in the shadows,
In a blink of an eye,
A feeling.
The softess grass,
Alike as the very air we breathe.
Motionless past watching eyes,
Stirring with the breeze.
I perceive him there.
Not quite visible.
He creeps, unnoticed,
His walked this path many times.

Well done, Hannah, I liked this.

God bless America, my home sweet home.

quite an eerie feel to this

if you'd like help with the mechanics, the least important, but sometimes interruptive part of writing, e-mail the poem to me and I'll proof read it for you, offering my constructive critique

I'm a teacher and though I don't catch everything, I have a pretty good eye and would love to take you up on your request for them

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.
