The Daily Post prompt is: water.

Roll, waves of curdled cloud

over the troubled ocean of night,

wash the waving treetops with darkness

and the damp grass with shadows.

I will not wait for the rising moon

to light my way down the tangled path,

but follow the scent of the last spring roses

to the place where you will be waiting.

No pale and timid sunset, fading soft,

could make a fitting frame for you,

only the wild and untamed sky,

lightning-streaked and thundering will do.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
