Dream #15

spangled moonless night

retreats from black to blue

I spin towards dawn grateful

sleep’s re-hash of ancient noire

will be rubbed out

by exposure to the Sun

Dream #14

the Moon lies

in some galactic gutter

off his face on space junk

leaving all the lights on

so many colours, constellations confused

by brilliance of the luminous clutter

and you here, warm, safe, sound asleep

to the universal song and dance

of the stars going loopy

given their chance

Dream #6

so silent this blue turns black

nothing moves on Earth

a meteor streak

a faint schwoosh far off

sprinkled stardust

dissolves into tapestry of night

day’s events inspire

everything possible

night long amusement

On Water x

night oils the river

dark thoughts patrol between banks

let us not go there

n.b. Dedicated to You Little Charmer because her writing makes me laugh…and cry.

Night Words After The Diner

The whisky went straight to my legs

my eyes, my arms, my tongue

I was experiencing things differently

Felt Earth spinning off its axis

It became a place I did not know

Did I need more drinking practice?

~

n.b. Night photo was taken to capture the empty street scene, but it came out weird, with evidence of existence of the Yeti…alive and well in East Anglia. It is certainly cold enough in Norfolk for Yeti.

Pubs now open in England, outside drinking only. Short rhyme prompted by photo. No pubs were visited during the making of this moving picture.

n.n.b. Off-prompt NaPoWriMo 2021 Day Fifteen scribble.

On Earth

Night’s shadow climbs hill

fills in hollows, outlines trees.

Sun ignites heaven.

On Song

Blackbirds serenade

Night owl returns to duvet

Curtains mask the dawn

L3: (Day 52) Under the Moon

Brightest of night’s lights!

As this dusty disc bowls past

who polishes your heart?

On Movement

We hold form by day

take different shapes at night

twisted by our dreams
