Poem: This Midnight of Existence

midnight-garden

“Midnight Garden” by Kerry Darlington, United Kingdom

 

This Midnight of Existence

 

The exhale of a horse steams imagination,

relieves the tension in my shoulders as Atlas

sets the earth down for dinner.

While the busy-squeak of a mouse shuffles the bush

night is young and mischief afoot!

Trails trip under the network of blackberry roots,

an intelligence plays here.

Consider the mole

β€”in its blind fury weaves tunnels beneath grass clumps

spy hops for air and direction.

What cannot be seen is there,

strength stirs under sod

all to their own compass.
