Honeydew dusk

Birds whistle goodbye tunes
For sleep demands submission
Light lingers, fades
A honeydew dusk
Hinting a purplish hammock
That cradles the stars
As clouds sway with unborn tears
Earth below thirsts

Waking moon quivers
In her flight actoss a black brocade
Taking a vow to shine the night
Fireflies spark a velvety horizon
Nuzzling a honeydew dusk..

      1. Ah, my dear, it’s a very warm summer here too. The electricity was off for three hours in the morning meaning no air-conditioning. I was not able to do anything. You have a fabulous week, my lovely soul sister!!! Know you are loved! Be inspired!

      1. Thanks, Yas, I’m thankful for blessings received. Adversity has a way of increasing hopefulness and gives me many reasons to keep pressing (and WordPressing) on. I hope you’re well, too. Looking forward to many blue skies, sunsets and sunrises ahead. πŸ™‚

      2. May your sky always be blue and may you bask in sunshine !
        Life is a mix of both blessings and adversity , I think you , Rach, are strong enough to handle both.
        Yes, WordPress is like my sounding board.
        It’s good to talk to you. Take care.

    1. The heat is getting to me, Devika. Sorry o haven’t read anything much here too. I do miss reading you, though.
      Now, heading your way is somethin I look forward to.


  1. Where sleep demands submission, I love the paradox in that….that’s brilliant in itself. So peaceful reading this, how can one not be relaxed. You ease the soul Yassy my dear while cooling the mind. 🌹🌹

  2. I can not see how this could be embellished: I am transported…but for this meal of wonderwords I would suggest a nice curry to evoke a bit of temple heat which light breezes might assuage – and forget not a small squeeze of key lime into the jasmin rice with chunks of just-caught fish. Let the cats clean the plate as you doze half-‘tween sate and daze. What a multi-faceted ride you wright with words wonderfully woven.

      1. Yes I do stay in a castle. And I have a bunch of duties so I don’t really post much. Night time be the time the count prowls [this sounds super weird]. Anyway, your work is art and brilliant

    1. Thank you.
      I am humbled and honored with the nomination but as I told everyone here before I don’t do awards. I write only for the love of poetry. I think when people read my work , that is award enough.
      I hope you understand.
      Happy weekend !!

      1. You choice of words and the way you weave them into poetry is beautiful.

        Just that it has become very difficult to get time to read all I want due to my busy schedule.

        But will definitely will read all you have written by taking time off my work.
