When the light-sensitive.
have departed and the wind 
storms at wooded trunk
no-one speaks of the turbulence
Published in the August issue of Lakeview International Journal of Arts and Literature [Pg 15]

"When the light sensitive have departed.."
Premonitive. Powerful. I shivered.

Thank you Austere. Feedback is always interesting. Somehow. I never quite anticipated these words would evoke such a sense of dread - send shivers down the spine. I'm always fascinated by such responses. Thank you for reading and writing in.
