Fade Beneath the Horizon

May 23, 2008
By Erin Henry, Kalispell, MT

Lights flash
Yellow ere eyes
As the night lengthens
I drifted away

The moon stares
Deep into my eyes
As if there was something to say

Color splashes onto the surface
The moon surrounded
Illuminated arms
Wrap around its whole

Echo’s of humanity
Rattle the walls
Dead trees support
Remembering the sweet scent of rain

The light trapped
Only for a moment of black
A heart appears
In the resting ground
