The Defeat of Darkness

Lose that frown
you who would despair;
grass greens

through time’s spilled sand.
Darkness lost a duel
with the moon.

Once
shoveled shrieking into the rain,
stars twinkle and shine.

Fog’s gauze
gobbled the shadows,
left with them.

Oh, glorious morning
the dew has dried,
the mist has lifted.

Say farewell
to that dark and mournful cloud;
the long night is done.

Take notice…
the sun is shining.
It is a new day.

    Yep! Fogs are death on shadows and a bright full moon is an enemy of the dark (though, mythically, a friend of werewolves). No matter how dark any night, it always must give way to dawn.
