River Crossing

Take me to a dark place
         where blind bats see
         and rodents nest
         and a single candle's glow
         is swallowed by the void.

Take me to a dark space
          where dreamless sleep
         cocoon's my heavy limbs
         curling into a tight sphere
         so no one will notice me.

Take me to that dark place
         where the suspended bridge
         from the living to the dead
         is camouflaged by river mist
         and I can cross unimpeded.
                   ~~~ Judi Van Gorder
