Dark Knight Poem by Holly Jamestone


I listened to the vigil
And cried with those who wept
We celebrated “lives, ” though lost
Whose memories will be kept

The sun began to leave the sky
But left me with a sight
A cloud shaped like a dragon
Though I never felt its fright

Right beside the dragon cloud
An angel cloud appeared
Illuminated in God’s light
A world to not be feared

I snapped a photo of these clouds
And soon the dragon faded
As good times far outweigh the bad
Our unity unjaded

An angel cloud will always be
Our vapor hope and friend
Guarding us and guiding us
As we begin to mend
