Splashes of Night


Splashes of night
Colour my rainbow day
Yet without dark
How would we know light?

A Good Day (NaPoWriMo – Day 6)

I know,
What a day,
Spent in this way,
It flew way to fast,
All the moments that passed,
Full of life, light, and good food,
Love shared in this beautiful mood,
Memories made in joining the crowd,
List’ning with pleasure to music so proud,
So smile with me please as I take on this vow,
There is nothing can take this away from me now.

(How is that? a new style for me! Rhyming couplets with ever increasing syllables – does it work?!)

Another Day

Another day expired,
Moments lived and died,
Fleeting thoughts, prophecies,
Deepful truth, lies.

Feeling more than words can say,
Saying more than feel,
Taking on to stretch the soul,
Discarding all unreal.

Past gone, present here,
Future lies awaiting,
‘Carpe Diem’ lies the land,
Breathing, quiet, abating.
