Poetry

Blackout

When the lights are gone

And the world finally sits still

The sands of time seem to halt

As silence befalls the earth

 

Back to a simpler time we turn

When televisions weren’t constantly burnt

When the sun provided light enough for our sustenance

As it signaled dawn and dusk

 

A simpler time

Of moon dance and star light

Of mindful observation –

no Internet connection

 

When the lights are gone

The world reverts to a simpler time

A time of wonderment at the tranquil thrum of life
