to die or to vivify

a soft flame flickers

on the boundary

between glorious hope

and absolute darkness

 

the faithful come

to pay their respects

they whisper a prayer

underneath their breaths

and disappear into the shadows

 

a storm stirs in the distance

and so we must wonder

if such a fragile illumination

will be able to bear

the onslaught

of the tempest.
