Night Quiet

Fading light

by Joanne Troppello

Hands held forward groping in the dark,

looking for the familiar wall

she moves silently down the hallway.

Night quiet has settled over the house,

lending peace to her spirit

such calm the night air it gave to her.

Passing by the light switch,

her soul wanted the dark shroud instead,

she felt led to light a candle.

The night grew deeper still,

but yet she sat an angel of

the night, mesmerized by

a fading wax stick.
