The Bleak Hour

The
bleak hour
when uninvited
shadows
gather
over one
to pick up the
fallen hand
that lay
still.

Two worlds
touching—

One ends,
another           is           begun.
Too late if anything left
un-
done.

The
bleak hour:
When
will it be
that the
shadows,
cast off the
divine light,
gather
over
me?
 
 
(From the book Kairos)
