Black March Poem

Black March

Fields lay barren, under skies tumultuous,
March whispers cold, through winds untrustworthy.
Footsteps echo, a lone figure's passage,
Through the remnants of winter's savage.

Cityscapes loom, in shadows cast long,
Streets empty, save for the night's lone song.
Buildings, like sentinels, silent and tall,
Watch over the figure, through spring's hesitant call.

Rain taps gently, on windows shut tight,
Reflecting the city's reluctant night light.
Alleys, narrow, with secrets untold,
Harbor stories, in the March cold.

Lights flicker, in the distance so near,
Guiding the way, through the atmosphere unclear.
The figure moves, with purpose, but slow,
Through the city's heartbeat, steady and low.

In the silence, a promise, unspoken,
Of cycles unending, and spirits unbroken.
March, with its darkness, and its renewing rain,
Brings forth life, from the terrain.
A narrow city alley during a rainy night in March
A narrow city alley during a rainy night in March
