Wow! That’s What I Call Micropoetry! Vol. II

The empty heavens.
A scattering of salt-crystal stars
On a twilight tablecloth;
All that is left
Now the horizon
Has finished feasting
On the day.
(Inspired by #microprompt ‘feast’)

Her hunger for knowledge
Was as insatiable,
As the bounds of the universe
Were immeasurable.
(Inspired by #MadVerse Prompt)

The universe owes you
Yet offers you

Life can be bleak
And bewildering
So fight back
By being foolish.

Inner storm
So my skin
Forms the eye,
Tranquil flesh
To hide the turmoil
In my mind.
(Inspired by #DimpleVerse Prompt)

The golden shallows
Of my conscious thoughts
Soothe the broiling depths
Of my fathomless fears.
(Inspired by #sensewrds Prompt 257)

I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading! I can also be found on
