This is the second part of a 2 part poetry collection. The first part is all about beauty and nature, which you can find in the Poetry section of Inkslinger Magazine (it starts with The Maple Leaf and ends with Phoenix). This collection is the flipside of the coin and is all about the darker, scarier aspects of humanity, life and the world we live in - starting with The Darkest Hour and the final poem is called Under Starry Skies.

Millions of water droplets
Flow silently as one
over the planet
Millions of droplets
Suspended effortlessly
Above ocean depths
The silence becomes
Tympanic symphony
In an instant
