Night Nuances

Alluring silence
Blankets the dark
Cobbles sorrows
Dreams dancing
Endless and slow
Frail minds glow
Greet I the night
Heavenly angels
In midst a prince
Jocundly winking
Kissing the wind
Laughter echoes
Mantle of ghosts
Now shrouds me
Opens my soul
Peeks into heart
Questions being
Respite not there
Still I continue
To where, unsure
Understand me
Vainly night tries
World escapes me
Xenial to the night
Yesterday passes
Zero hour begins

Words escape from mind
Its flow like calmness of breeze
Beauty like bird’s flight

I’ve been nominated for a Perfect Poet Award and this beautiful bird flew to my space to tell me of the nomination! I accept her into my world with pleasure! 🙂 I also nominate for the next award, Lady Nimue.

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.

  2. The beautiful words from your mind have escaped like the light flowing breeze
    both in the Acrostic poem and the marvelous Haiku.
    You have really bared your soul for all to peek in your good heart 🙂

    love your Haiku..

    fly like the bird, resilient you…

    thanks for the nomination and acceptance of the perfect poet award. 😉

  4. cool poem,

    life is a journey,
    we go side ways at times,
    but we can always find our way back to the main street…

    love the word flow..
    lovely entry for the Rally…
    have fun!

  5. Thank you so much for nominating me .. Thats an honor indeed for a learner like me !

    About your poem .. I loved reading it. No doubt about it .. But at places i think it was forced. Happens when you have such rule to go by (A-Z acro !). So i ignore it 🙂

    It was a pleasure read 🙂
    Going to attempt it soon 🙂

  6. The picture is amazing and the way you have written is awesome too.
    The layout seems like it was a complicated task – I like that.
    Shot for sharing,

  7. The theme of love and loss, vulnerability and humanity are interspersed so cadence like in unraveling the picture to the reader. Moving, Simply moving.



  8. This is a beautiful writing and I love the picture. It reminds of a place I used to live in Louisville, KY where gas lamps still lined the street. Very similar.

    • I did not notice this until i read the comment,
      super outstanding indeed…
      way to go.
      hope you well…

      ignore the awards notice, they could distract at times for more seasoned poets…I simply don’t want you to feel left out.
      feel good,
      get well,
      u rock!

      • you think so too, Ji? 😉 I never knew I was good at gymnastics of any kind 😀 glad you liked the poem, again..

        the award notices aren’t a distraction, Ji.. I accept your token of appreciation.. just that I find it difficult to choose so I don’t pass them on 🙂

        u rock too, and I’m fine now! 😀

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve put some of my poems to music, but just feel that that one is a little bit of nonsense, hardly worth the effort!

    I love your accrostic poem – such a difficult form to make meaningful. The haiku is lovely, too.

  10. First, congrats on the award! You earned it. I love the alphabetical wonder of words you created here and the lovely haiku as well. Thank you for sharing them with me. 🙂 heartspell

  11. wow!! must have taken you a really long time to write this….with the ABCs and then create such a beautiful piece…
    And congratulations on your award 🙂
