Chapter 12 – The Dawning

Chapter 12 of “The Proven Life”

Under darkening sky
Sun rising over the river
I made my way across a bridge
Jumping point for many eons

I sought safety
Across the other side
418 miles to run
Roaring river to avoid

Something follows
Shadow and breath
Moving swift
I had no choice

Discerning the sprawled paper
I could see the headline in red
I surrendered my breath
For the sight took it away
