Artist’s Impression

Artist’s Impression

Rain clouds slowly moved on
after resolving their differences
with an impatient evening sky
anxiously waiting to throw
a star-spangled velvet cover 
on the remains of the day

If the full moon could speak
he would gently ask for
the wind to refrain
That the sea might remain calm
and allow its light to reflect 
on a still surface illuminating the night

The artist’s preparations, meticulous 
A serene nightscape comes to life
On a daily blank canvas
Earth and sky exist in harmony
Calming, soothing 
and brilliant in its beauty

Secret Night

Secret Night

Not a whispered sound
or the soft touch of
a breeze on the skin
A gentle murmuring
of angels never to be heard
on this dark night of sin

Walking blindly
towards nothing but black
each step an arduous mile
Stumbling at a fallen log
Confused and bearings lost
Stopping to rest for a while

Dawn breaks in the distance 
A sign of hope at last
Fear slowly relaxes its hold
Clarity found with passing seconds
Remnants of the previous night
will remain forever untold

Rite of Passage – Poem of the Month – February 2021

Rite of Passage

Dusty pink taffeta sky
lays in folds against
a blue-grey background
of twilight
The raft of northern ducks
silhouetted and bobbing
on a pewter lake mirroring
the last of the day’s offering
A rising moon chases the sun
from view as darkness descends
Sounds fall silent when the day 
gives way to night and 
and the handover is complete

Grace is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and has prompted us with personification
and/or imagery.  I chose imagery for
my poem.


Look Up There – A Quadrille

Look Up There

Orion straddles the sky
His belt twinkling
Lighting the way
Stars sprinkling
A cheesy moon
at the halfway mark
The shadow of his smile
visible in the dark
Match made in heaven
A lover’s tryst
Moon and stars shine
As the earth is kissed

De Jackson, aka Whimsy Gizmo, is hosting
Monday Quadrille at D'Verse Poets.  Tonight
he has prompted us with "Sky"

A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words
excluding the title.

This is a reworked poem of mine from several
years ago that fitted this category.
