One thought on “Wicked Word Wednesday: Nocturnal

  1. Persistent night
    continues to stay through
    each and every day
    blocking out the light
    of hope with ashy gray

    Those times the night
    felt safe, my nocturnal
    hiding from frightening
    images- we need God’s
    peace and wisdom through each
    perilous black day
