Shadows From the Dark

Shadows from the Dark

Two ravens black as night

Together in bounded flight

Beaks twist and pull

On unseen strings

Scattered wings

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.

Two pairs of human eyes

Deep pools like empty skies

Filled with tears and angered fear

Blink and stare

Against the unseen glare

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.


Ravens wind threads together

Bind them in grace forever

Across the earth to see

Sealed in deeper knowledge

Thoughts of love and courage

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.

Hands and arms that reach

Across deep oceans the search

Lost horizons from the deep

Mountains rose from the ground

Forests grow in silent sound

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.


Eyes mesmerized, entangled lines

Mouths speak empty soundless signs

For those without ears

Stories and ancient tales

Truths of tipping scales

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.

Circle and swirl

Round and round

Lost souls, spider’s web

No start, no end

Just one message to send

Hope in truth, not lies

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.

Burning rays of light

Scatter and break the night

Mirrored pieces of glass

Who am I to perceive?

Who am I to conceive?

Who is right, who is wrong

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.


Just once, just once my friend

With slight and precious intend

Your eyes and smile

Stretch mile after mile

Bring love to heal

With authority to steal

Shadows from the dark

Screams of the unseen lark.
