A Long Time Dead – #OctPoWriMo

Bring me to the light.

I wish to bask in its warmth.

Darkness is much too cold.

Rejoice in life.

Savor the earth, the sky.

Awakening to the

joy of this world.

A miracle.

No promise of tomorrow

and we are

a long time dead.

  This is part of a 31 day challenge.  October is Poetry Writing Month.  I’m gonna try for the 31 poems in 31 days.  We will see.  You can find out all about the challenge HERE.  Have fun! 🙂

I must give credit here to Michael for the inspiration for this poem.  The words “a long time dead” came from him and I knew I just had to do something with them.  Be sure to visit Michael’s blog.  You never know what you might find. 🙂
