OctPoWriMo, Day 14 (Poem 12)

ReclaimingHello!  The wedding was lovely, for those interested — very cute, very “them.”  I didn’t take photos (I opted to actually enjoy the evening with my family, and trust me, there was no dearth of photos taken), and I am now lounging and mentally prepping for the work week ahead.

I am actually up-to-date with OctPoWriMo, this is just the first chance I’ve had to post since Friday.  Poem 11 is a series of haiku.


Sleeping in Shadows

Streetlights through curtains
Silken and diaphanous
Cast us in relief

Here you are film noir
Beautiful in monochrome
Light and dark entwined

Shadows shift like masks
A dark parade of strangers
Utterly entranced

Always you are loved
But there’s magic in moonlight
Here in this moment


OctPoWriMo is a month of poetry writing!  Link ups are closed, but follow along if the mood strikes.
