Signs of Life 

Finding a seam within the darkness 

He thrusted his single engine towards the gap

It had been years since light was known

He had never stopped in his search for this now mythic like opening 

To see light for the first time since the wars ended, brought tears to his eyes

Remembering how the earth was once decorated with the sun’s rays

As he crossed through, he looked back and saw how the nuclear missiles had totally ravaged Mother Earth 

Cities, structures, landscapes, totally desolate and barren

That was the last time he would ever look back

His focus was now on finding other survivors, other signs of life

The seam in the darkness slowly closed behind him
