The Calm

terrifying night,
thin, the veil, deathly still,
calm before the storm


For Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, prompt words: Night and Spooky/Terrifying

The Flame

in the gloaming gloom
candlewicks charred from past trysts
yearn to be consumed
with no dread of ashy death
the flame’s fervid kiss is life


A Tanka for Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge. This week with a twist…to use synonyms of the promptwords: Fright/Dread and Night/Gloaming.

Magnetic Poetry Monday

she is not broken

by darkness

she embraces the

magic of the night

she is woman

wild as the day

she was born

A Time to Dance – Magnetic Poetry Monday

o, how i could linger
here listening to you
breathe, but morning
comes to devour the
magic of the night…
remember though…some
days call for dancing

Nightfall – NaPoWriMo 2017 #17



the breeze is sweetened by the rain
as bulbous drops on petals cling
beneath a starless sky, brushed gray
night is hovering on the wing

in the gloaming street lights flicker
glowing amber mist descending
shadows loom as fog grows thicker
night is hovering on the wing

gather round for bedtime fables
rock-a-bye hush, the children sing
stay awake if you are able
night is hovering on the wing
