A darkness exists between the stars,
with depth to bring a chill to any soul.
Yet, within that night lie souls
that would cast their darkness upon us.
That is when we realize they are not so distant.
Back to darkness, in my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Six (each day a new Yeats quote).
“Suddenly I saw the cold and rook-delighting heaven” W.B. Yeats
