Chiaroscuro

Poetry talks to me in the indigo stillness of a warm summer night.
Chasing word games in my mind, under a sky full of stars...who walk 
me..firing the glow in my eyes...timeless...ageless
Fireflies glimmer
Across the turnstile..
Scent of incense
Like the soul of the night,a jeweled zephyr trails the quietude..
Argent misted, transcending dark..embellishing shadows dancing like
wraiths in the languid tawny gloom.
Moonlight thoughts
dazzle..
Clouds airbrush 
the moon.
The stridulation of crickets and hoo-hoo-hoooo of owls fill the 
nocturnal space like pantomimic gestures of vocalists.
My breath revels in scents of silver crested blossoms..
I feel the sketch of eternity in time's evanescence..
Chiaroscuro-
Mise-en-scene
Unfolds..
I listen....

Ohh i dont know, i read the first two lines directly from the excerpt displayed on my news feed,i fell in love with your metaphors and decided to read it in detail.As i delved into the post,realised that few words were missing..but if nobody else has experienced it,maybe it is my device that is facing a fault

      1. You really do have a worldly innocence about your poems. I adore them. I have been a tad unwell of late, yet in recovery soft words heal. Yours are soft words. Thank you for posting.

      2. Oh! I hope you feel better now . I think I missed your posts on twitter too and wondered.
        Be well. And take it easy. You have a safe and peaceful weekend.

  1. This was amazing Yassy, the way the words of color were drawn down, everything seemed to fade into each other with such harmony as you delicately arranged your words in such a form that perfectly matched line by line. Not to mention your wording is amazing and visually colorful as you always are. A poem that warrants admission to see πŸ˜‰!! A lovely piece my friend.🌹🌹
