So as to regard the infinite Universe.
For the softening of things, the greater peace and quietness.
The appearance and sounds of the creatures of the dark.
The spiritual renewal that can come with dreams.
The darkness of the soul that needs be known for us to experience Joy.
The mystery, the majesty, the melancholy.
A time for sweet and soft Love behind the shades.
The settling of sleep on tired eyes.
The protection and rest given to the wild creatures of the world.
The unseen terrors that creep and lurk for some, longing for its end,
So as to love the Day.
Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
