No voices linger,
not even the sound
of shattered glass
echoes, only bones

shedding flesh,
an unholy darkness
within, a mystery
shrouded in silence.

      1. Thank-you, V.J. for reflecting on my creativity. I try! Sometimes it works and sometimes it’s a dud. Sometimes I want to go out in the world to take a few photos and the weather or life stops me. 🙂
