Obsidian Black

by Delvin Diles
now comes one blameless 
giver in the morning 
giver of mourning 
adorned in granite 
Obsidian Black 
comes as the last 
beginning of life 
a true transition at last 
fear it, ponder about it 
wonder about it 
it comes to pass 
and after is then 
so now savor laughter 
and wind 
and light 
and rain 
P.D.A's, L.E.D.'s, R&R's, streets and cars, drinks and bars, 
skies and stars, 
loves and wars, hugs and scars 
all that is 
all you are 
it takes then, so how 
could you not, 
in its shadow 
live right now?
