    The Coming of Light
    Mark Strand - 1934-2014
    "Even this late it happens:
    the coming of love, the coming of light.
    You wake and the candles are lit as if by themselves,
    stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows,
    sending up warm bouquets of air.
    Even this late the bones of the body shine
    and tomorrow's dust flares into breath."

    Desolation dwells

    Left emptiness, vacant room
    stark walls, lonely broom
    tilting table, checkered cloth
    coffee stains, lifeless moth
    human beings here once dwelt
    perhaps hope here once was felt
    but look around and see
    could it have been but misery
    desolation dwells

    Uninspired ornaments of alabaster
    molded scrolls of casting plaster
    windows smudged with coated grime
    wooden floors revealing time
    desolation dwells

    Left emptiness, vacant room
    stark walls, lonely broom
    tilting table, rusty knife
    reminders of the time
    this lonely place once was alive
    human beings here once dwelt
    joy and sorrow once were felt
    now shadows cast a silent spell
    and desolation dwells

    the age of empty nesters
    wrestling empty gestures
    founded cruise ships on brand new artificial hips
    busy doctors offices with social tips
    the age of empty busy lifes
    busy husbands
    busy wifes
    the age of empty lifes
    busy being nesters
    alone in empty gestures
    together alone in work & home
    defining empty nesters

    inspired by Write4U Poem - Desolation dwells
    the concept of passing social ages
    lifes many stages
