Hush

Written for dVerse

I missed the deadline for “Once upon a” so here it is for open link. Thanks. šŸ™‚

 

Hush

Once upon a night

as meteors soared

illuminating obscurity

we understood fragility

each sacred breath

woven in cold white

a breath never to breathe again.

 

Lilac orchids in snow;

cacti in swamp.

 

I gathered the annuals in pots

before the freeze

upset by their death

although it never bothered before.

The early darkness seizes

me, portending winter snow

days wrapped in cold midnight

grayness, slate skies,

solitary tempest suggestions

of sleep, bitter sleep.
