Exploring the dark side
River Crossing

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

Take me to a dark space
          where spiritless 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
