Approaching Darkness

Darkness marches            distant mountains,
a solemn, menacing figure
in a swirling grey cloak
His intentions shrouded and mysterious
face masked by smiling stars,
blanketing all in his wake
with a cover of gloom,
Earth at his mercy
as she waits...
                           for beneficent sunrise

Thanks, Steve. No, that came from a friend, who took it on a hiking trip. Photos inspire me so much.
