Where milky moon pearls sleep

For the Secret Keeper’s writing prompt.

The words this week are:



I dip my hand into the stream,

To reach the place of dark weed stream,

Where stray sunbeams on fish scales gleam.


Full fathom five in water deep,

Is where the milky moon pearls sleep,

And fallen stars and lost ones weep.


The line plays out and square sails swell,

I hear the ringing of the bell,

But where you went no one will tell.

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.
