Night

Night, clouded cocoon
Scattered stars fall;
Fireflies

For OSI – Prompt #127 – Cocoon and Haiku Heights – Prompt #2 – Metamorphosis

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
