lullaby

lullaby

when the night is still,
amber lit, from horsehair walls
memories whisper
century-old tales slip through
the parting of the veil

Gone – a Cleave Poem

PicsArt

Gone

imagining you gone  | as fogs hovers
i still hear your whispers  | dripping with dew
your breath | a gentle breeze
warming my neck | infused by fragrance
the brush of your lips  | sweetness blossoming
against my skin | spring on the wind
imagining you gone | sun muted by the gray
pierces my heart  | remnants of night
rendering me inconsolable | causing the doves to mourn

As promised, my second rendering of this interesting poetry form…the Cleave Poem. One should be able to read the left column, right column and each line across as a combined thought giving you three distinct poems. An interesting challenge indeed.

To learn more about the Cleave poem or to give it a try yourself, click HERE to Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge.

Crescent Moon whispers
as Horizon blushes pink
promising delights.

A Three Line Tale for the photo prompt challenge from Sonya at Only 100 Words. There is a saying that says “red sky at night, sailor’s delight”.  I thought of this when I looked at the photo above. Today I penned a Haiku (3 lined poem/tale) for you. If you would like to read other tales or enter your own, click HERE.
