intonight

and where he walked
the daylight
followed after

into the night
each step

into the man
each step

what was darkness . . .
taken
leaving light
behind

where he walked
the nighttime
became
him

he took it all
he breathed it all
until all of it
was
he

behind him
the day
bright
behind him
the sun

he walked into
the night time
behind him
was the sun

Poem #557 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
