Silver night

I posted this five line poem on twitter:

 

deep night

the world is pale

silver

as lunar dust

sky a velvet robe.

 

then worked it up into a butterfly cinquain.

 

Deep night,

the world is pale

silver as lunar dust,

sky a velvet robe, diamond-specked,

dancing

to the moon’s song gently humming,

owls’ soft brown feathered songs,

the lullaby

of trees.

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.
