Sky Is As Black As Ink

The sky is black as ink, storms brewing sitting in the dark.
Hypnotizing effect, my eyelids closing in a trance like state.
A candle I did light, glowing, penning ink into words.

    The creation of natures power on the poets peripheral, allowing the poets power to create on the peripheral of natures power. Fine Sijo Connie, sure allows the readers thoughts to image within :)

    Thank you for you wonderful comment. I've only been writing poems four months. Trying new styles of poems. I did research on this style but I still wasn't sure if incorporated all elements that are required for a Sijo. Warm Smiles, Connie
