Calm Within

"Not Quite Candlelight" - Makati, 17 October 2015
“Not Quite Candlelight” – Makati, 17 October 2015

lights flickering

as the

wind

spirals and

shrieks

its gorgonian

fury,

threatening

to drown

conversations and

confidences.

 

the world

huddles

under its

coverlets

shivering

quivering

in fear

in trembling

but i

stay calm.

 

i hum

along

with the

battle chant

of this

storm,

relaxed

recumbent

refreshed

by the

eldritch energy

crackling through

the air

around me

accepting

an elemental

blessing

for my

self

for my

soul.
