I Shall Arise

vanish dark night,
end your sojourn;
succumb you stars
to the echoes
of the Creator’s whisper;
set Moon, you lesser light,
give way to the glorious Sun;
come silence, still my heart,
claim your hollow victory;
for when the dawn comes,
I shall arise

written in response to this week’s Quadrille challenge at dVerse Poets


  1. It occurred to me that no matter where the Moon is when the Sun rises, it goes into the background. Nice parallel between the Sun rising and resurrection.
