After dark


After dark – my wife inside – our black

cat near – seeing a star – sitting in my

tabernacle – interiors – a candle –

the outside world – deep – profound –

exteriors – my neighbours fight – beyond –

a solitude – what is this life – my father

looks out – sees the passing planes – comments

on the boats returning – sunlit – in the

afternoon – each morning after waking –

he sits upon his bed – looking out

his window at the harbour – so near –

the heavenly realms – blessed with every

spiritual blessing – chosen before the

foundation of the world – in love.
