Erebus.

Updated on March 8, 2010

Erebus!

The night is

my eternal Mum,
she wraps me in

a swaddling

of ebony,
spins me

a mobile

of stars above,
and a hazy moon

for a night light.


She sings ancient
dirges to me

in the lullabies

of crickets chirps,
and whispering

breezes.


Stars fall

but I am

undisturbed,
Worlds collapse

and I slumber on.
