Silken Sable Sheets
Flecked with the dust of heaven
Sheltering the earth
(Inspired by @DimpleVerse Prompt ‘Dusk Light’)
Footsteps slip through midnight’s silence
Closing in from all around,
Death creeps softly through the darkness;
Hush your heart, don’t make a sound.
Dancing without boundaries,
Who cares for choreography?
When there’s perfect synchronicity
Between each sound and my soul.
Wild doves burbling like
Such a civilized sound
To invigorate the day.
(Inspired by #NatureVerse prompt ‘Wild/Civilized)
Trying to write my masterpiece
Whilst o’er keyboard I am haunched
Biscuit fingers coat crummy keys
Stubbornly stuck and stiffly scraunched.
We are all a blend of darkness and light;
Our minds a mix of folly and insight.
Rising from the dew-drenched Earth
Scattering cherry-blossom clouds
Across the lavender sky.
(Inspired by #PoemPeriod prompt ‘Blossom’)
I hoped to write more meaningful words,
But then I realized,
If happiness lies in acting absurd –
Why bother being wise?
