Settling Hours (tanka)

Updated on January 30, 2015

The settling hours

Which brought comfort to the day

Now scours through the night

Searching for some reasoning

To make it all feel worth while

      With that lovely little poem I'm sure it will all be well worthwhile.

      Excellent, dark and intense. Yes, it is those dark hours one must get through, where the demons tend to fill our thoughts and mind.
