Letting the Light In–Quadrille

A child’s tear,

a parent’s fear

accidents, catastrophe

not vampires and ghosts

the shadows in the night,

monsters here,

(not out of sight)

urging hate, urging war—

I fear the real,

the evil here

but look for love,

and beauty in the sun above

This is a quadrille for Dverse. The prompt word is fear.
