Somewhere in the Dark

a poem for the Stage


Somewhere In the Dark

Somewhere in the dark
An owl hoots a lonesome cry
As a man walks alone.
Unsure of where he's going
and wanting to forget where he's been.

Somewhere in the dark
a ghostly hand reaches out.
Reaching for nothing and finding it there
It quietly returns to nowhere.

Somewhere in the dark
a child cries at what goes bump in the night
and the wolves errie call to the moon

Somewhere in the dark
Hides a dream of what the world should be
As a child wishes upon a falling star
and a few dreams come true.

Somewhere in the dark.

It should not so strange that a return to innocence ...
should come in darkness,
where we heard our first sounds,
and formed rhythms
and patterns
of thought.
