Losing Darkness

Pink Flowers

Turn the light out in a cave
and feel the dark come crashing in.
Gratitude. Beyond the grave
such darkness does not get to win.


This is a “dribble” which is a poem of 100 letters (excluding punctuation such as periods, apostrophes, spaces or dashes). The title is not part of the count. See Abigail Gronway’s Happier New New for another example. She challenges us to write one and post a link in the comments of her post.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Oooh, interesting form…I must give it a go 🙂 I am beyond grateful that Darkness will never get to win in our lives–Jesus vanquished it 2000 years ago.

  2. Frank, this is beautiful! On my second reading, I saw even more meaning than what first met my eye. I pictured myself standing inside an empty tomb in Israel, praising my Savior for conquering death, hell, and darkness.
