This is a response to a prompt for “Monsters”. https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/02/monday-motivations-73/
Monsters of the Light and the Dark
Here they come, walking go-lightly together in pairs
The monsters of the light
For safety; to gossip
They all do it that way; Sunday School outreachers
They have issues too – they talk to me about their stuff all the time
Don`t worry – they only come out in the daylight.
There they are, hiding hunched in the shadows
The monsters of the dark
Some in couples; some grouped for strength
Some alone; so far gone they prefer it that way
They secretly want me to take them; but that’s not my call
Don’t worry – they only come out at night.
When I started this, there were no monsters
I made the darkness and the light
Always thought that was an exceptional concept; contrast, shadow, reflection…
Some of my best work; right up there with Lego
But lately they only want to stick together with their own kind – just like Lego, funny enough
Don`t worry – they’ll work it out, just takes a while.
allfornow – Mitch
