Perfecting The Darkness

Perfecting darkness
The night;
I hear it
I touch it...

The night turns alabaster in the moon's warm embrace entwining silver rays on a fluid rhythm of sparkling novae..Baroque stars circle moon...platinum gilted wrapping Lazhward fire of an ancient dappled night
Plumeria scents entice, permeating lilting dew drops dancing like nymphs in fragrant glossed time-worn skies.

Tinseled runes murmur
A poem whispers
Sleeping leaves scatter

Glimmering stars devour shadows of fog into an auric spell. Starbeams' mystic light echoes in the quilting of solace I find in my own embrace.

My refugee heart takes refuge in poetry. Time stops. I am asleep and awake at the same time.

On nimble feet
I tiptoe
Pirouetting like
A ballerina
Turning my night to a Sonata
The ink blurs into a Vivaldi sonnet.

I breathe the whole night in one breath......

  2. Breathing the whole night in one night, beautiful crescendo Yassy. A symphony of effortless movements within the darkness creating a pyrotechnic of poetic light that can be read for miles. Wonderfully worded and marvelously marked Yassy.🌹

  3. Transcendent and dreamlike, your words waft into the night air with flashes of images, colors and smells that entice the mind. It is all so beautifully written that it is hard to pick a favorite passage, but I do love the last stanza. And the last line is just exceptional in the feeling you convey. Well done, Yassy!
