Erstwhile Lovers

creatures of the night
    the bats zoom in abandon 
        darkness cloaks their flight
            secret rendezvous’ arise
heartbreak marries morning light

mesmerizing sights
   the rhythmic beat of fireflies
       sunlight fades its light
           a love shrouded in darkness
drowns inside the marriage tide

For SandyIvy Davis ‘Tanka –Love& Marriage’ Contest

    ‡ I Am Truly Loving Poetry Today For Some Reason Beyound The Norm, Beautiful Lady. You Know It When You Feel It ? Viewing This Touching Moment In Heartful's Twice, I Do See Wherein There Might Be A Tad In Sorrow Wherein Only Being Given But Half The Time And The Night ? But Oh These Fires Which Burn So Bright, Fan Their Flames; Whom Can Deny. Beautiful Poem Vicky. Love, Rachel ‡
