Up Upon the Watchtower

A poem

Author photo. Church of the Good Shepherd, Lake Takapo, New Zealand

Up upon the watchtower
in cold dawns pale light I see
dust clouds rising on the dark horizon
from the feet of my enemy.

The city lay quiet below me
slumbering without a care
while the horsemen thunder closer
they sleep on unaware.
