S. Thomas Summers… A Lost Child

 

A Lost Child

The wolves
howl.
The pines
harvest
darkness
from the air,
horde it beneath
their limbs.
 
Wrapped
in an apron,
her mother
stands
in the black
by the deep well
holding a candle,
the dancing flame
a final hope.

One thought on “S. Thomas Summers… A Lost Child

  1. S. Thomas Summers represents the value of autonomy in a child seeking survival in a world of wolves defining for us a fine observer’s psychological understanding
    perceived in an understanding of pathos of a recognition and realization in the
    language of candor of violence reflecting our times yet there is a candle of hope from darkness.
