For my 20th National Poetry Month post (and 65th total post!), this is a free verse rhyming poem I wrote one early evening as I looked up at a crazy sunset wondering what the night might bring. 😀
Jackson Pollock is the sky
To let me know what my
Night might bring
As its shadowy bells begin to ring.
A dinner chime? A long repose?
Or maybe not a one of those?
Stars like glitter, moon like ice?
A chance to indulge some secret vice?
A circle of loved ones around a table
The air filled with laughter as soft as sable?
I won’t have answers to Night’s questions until
The dark has left and Day’s sweet swill
Pours through my window to remind
What I accepted and declined.
