For Carry On Tuesday prompt: No more talk of darkness, forget these wide eyed fears from Phantom of the Opera
Just outside window, sunlight streams
through fence, marking a pattern of darkness
and light, where rabbit tracks seemingly dance
over ghostly white/gray moonscape.
Appropriate that this most timid of creatures
would be first trace left to remind us that each soul,
no matter the circumstances, must choose to move
from shadow into light. Must whisper to itself
of need for no more talk of darkness, must forget
these wide eyed fears.
