    -------------------------------------------


    Where can you be, Night?
    I am looking...
    I am searching...
    I long for your blank pages,
    your endless hours,
    the soft sounds of the bats flying...

    Where can you be, Dark?
    All I can see is the omnipresent
    and blindingly bright sun,
    and I find the blue sky unbearable.

    Where can you be, Stars?
    You are too dim to see the day.
    I know this,
    but can you not show yourselves to me,
    when I am alone in the shadowy attic?

    Where can you be, Sleep?
    My eyes are heavy,
    and I spend the hours trudging endlessly.









    Where can you be?

      I feel that I was too caught up in my own feelings when I commented on Part I to have given it justice and I apologize for that.

    The voice of this piece is almost pleading. I feel a need for the peace and solice of darkness...the need for respite and sleep. My favorite lines:

    "All I can see is the omnipresent
    and blindingly bright sun,
    and I find the blue sky unbearable.

    Where can you be, Stars?
    You are too dim to see the day.
    I know this,
    but can you not show yourselves to me,
    when I am alone in the shadowy attic?"

    Your pleas to the Stars...I have an affinity to the stars myself and this resonated with me.

    I find it fascinating that the bright sun and blue sky is unbearable, and that you're alone in the shadowy attic. Especially in the shadowy attic...I find I want to know more about that. That's a sign of great writing.

    This piece is not easily captured in one reading...or two or three...

    But it is intriguing and mystical and mysterious.

    And I love it.

    Lisa
