A liquid pool of night

I carried a liquid pool of night
in my pocket
In a glass tied with black ribbon
There it lay, snug and tight

The day was overly long
The night was due
I reached inside my pocket
Took out the glass tied with black ribbon
Poured out some liquid night
and watched the suns' changing hue

Tied with a ribbon, velvet and dark
Strewn with stars
I carried a pool of liquid night
In my pocket
There it lay
Snug and tight
Awaiting for tomorrows' night

    Great metaphoric language used in this one. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara

    Enchanting. Captured my soul and left me wanting more. If as I am there waiting, in anticipation, for the liquid to be poured. Mac
