Weep shadows of gloam, drip deep your leeching darkness Bring us now the night Settles in the hush Silent anticipation of the velvet cloak Revel in freedom as the stars guide our inward imagination Dreams and ancient fears rise like glowing unseen eyes which draw on our souls For we are creatures attuned to the moon's sweet call and so we answer With each breath we take we feed our fantasy's need with twilight's own musk
Paula Swanson For the contest Morning Noon or Night Senryus Sponsored by Francine Roberts Placement: 9th
