…AND EVENING BECAME OUR SANCTUARY

THE SUNDAY WHIRL –
Wordle #55

‘Twas a cobalt mist that came to grace the evening skies
in clear contrast with her cocoa eyes.
Night fell as she was emerging from her rest,
the chance to embrace the night and send the day
into a halted grind. And in the blink of her dark eyes,
a wink at that, we stood on the brink ready to
align and vibrate. She had succeeded to hook
the one of many fish in her sea. It ‘twas me!
On the page of our universe, we were merely a dot,
But we looked much bigger in print (if you’d squint!)

  1. A Vamp mermaid? Well I thought of a vampire rising at night… but then with sea reference… Like that chapter and verse, well print on the page ending. Fun wordle.

    Thanks for your visit.

  2. My favorite line: “On the page of our universe, we were merely a dot.” A fun write! I did wonder about a vampire: “Night fell as she was emerging from her rest.”

    Walt- I agree with everyone. If the last two lines rhymed, it would have been too predictable. I do like the internal rhyme, and your wittiness– It ‘twas me! = )

  4. Like this “toast to the night” poem, “the chance to embrace the night and send the day into a halted grind” – sounds good!
    Like the “blink, wink and brink” of it 🙂

  5. Walt, a fun read. It was playful, helped along with the occasional end rhyme and internal rhyme. I sense you had fun writing this one. And didn’t mind at all being hooked.

    Walt, I knew from the title I would LOVE this…and I did. I’m learning the art and appreciation of internal rhyme as I read your poetry. thank-you.
