burdened (into darkness)

burdened (into darkness) – 09/03/2022

the burden is
I feel it
all the same

I carry on . . .

I carry

and I bow
but not yet

the sky
above –
indifferent –
sails its clouds
into the west

but for me . . .

only burden
and so many
miles to go

into the darkness
I rest

  1. The imagery here is great. I thought it was a tree, but it could have been a statue. In either case, the picture and later the prose conveys a burden and a resolution to carry on. I can’t wait for this to be printed!!
