Night






Night

In jasmine centered night there
at the window in the ample spread
of Night thighs
defeated demons sigh
reaching with futile 
grasp at dissolving dreams
sliding safely away on
granite guard-rails as
the trilled whistle of possibility sings
safely slipped into a scrap of sunset domain

All is secure 
in jasmine centered night
there at that window
Night  
lush, languid,
liquid births its
melted 
mystic
what was
montage
into what 
is yet to be
as Dawn sleeps
with folded wings
in the arms of 
Morpheus

  1. You had fun with this one. Your "melted
    mystic what was montage into what is yet to be"
    is a brilliant interpretation of 'montage'

  14. The thought popped into my head of being woken up in a hospital bed to have to take a sleeping pill! Perhaps the jasmine was in a vase at the window beside the bed... Nicely wordled.

  15. "In jasmine centered night there
    at the window in the ample spread
    of Night thighs
    defeated demons sigh" this would have been enough...and then there is more....beautiful as always dear Pearl.
