When night quietly falls

Letting stars light up the sky

Peaceful bliss abounds

Friday Fantasy ~ On the Wisp of a Cloud – #poetry


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A rumble in the sky, in the darkest of night

Rain pours down, with no end in sight

Their bodies cry out, such a jubilant sound

Souls have been lifted from under the ground

Up to the sky, on the wisp of a cloud

They cling to each other, faces unshroud

Though joyful, these spirits, as they climb ever high

They tearfully watch, as the clouds start to cry

The Wooden Box ~ #poetry


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Wooden slats laid on the floor

Up the sides, so many more

The ceiling’s just another wall

Insanity finds you, you start to fall

Down to the bottom, no sign of light

No windows nor doors, it must be the night

Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run

When will this agony ever be done?

You feel all around, as you move side to side

It’s too dark to tell, for fear, where you hide

Down in the corner, head in your hands

You cry out in anguish, silent demands

But no one can hear you, they’ve all gone away

In this wooden box, forever, you’ll stay

Serenade Me ~ #DailyHaikuChallenge #poetry

Sing a song so sweet

Sway, with the branches up high

And serenade me

Slipping Away ~ #poetry #freeverse


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I could feel it slowly slipping

Like sand through my fingers

Sifting, into minute grains

Blowing, with the ocean breeze

I could feel the rhythmic sway

As the scent of the air lingers

And the shadows begin to wane

Washing over me, and I’m aware

How the night slipped into day

And the full moon rising,

Merely slipped away
