Night Perception

"Just Before Dawn" /Private Collection

By despair visited, as Hope sometimes is
In circles mulling the problem at hand
Helplessly drawn deeper, no help to enlist
Fruitlessly seeking, finally, to understand
Complexities of such a question as this

Indigo darkness stretched endlessly dense
An enveloping blanket of murky constraint
The question itself developing more intense
Of length unforgiving, of Hope most faint
The slowly passing hours now a lonely offense

Why! Hope cried out, surrounding by night
Feeling her defenses now were gone
Then, the final darkness received the light
Gradually, dawn crept through, she was not alone!
Yet no answer revealed, but that all would be right!
