A Night

horace1-2x

 

Once I seized a night

with all its darkness and stars

its semicircle moon and promises-

I gulped down its love words

in a man’s voice…….in gallons-

till my intoxicated soul

was drowned in a heady dream

of a never ending night-

where my words were songbirds

snuggling together to stay warm

to make it through all life-

Posted for my prompt Carpe-Diem / Seize the day @ Poets United Midweek Motif

  1. And may it continue endless as life–in song and in the fullness of now! It’s not all stars and romance, but every bit deepens the love and raises the song.

  2. Beautiful, Sumana. I love the way you turned the prompt around to
    ‘ Once I seized a night
    with all its darkness and stars
    its semicircle moon and promises’.

Thank You :)
