Mondo 2

what omnipotent
being is casting off stars,
this warm August night?

that's a silly question!
instead ask how it is I'll be getting home
with beauty like this...



NOTE: I stretched the syllables a bit, but I couldn't find any other way around it.

    Beautiful. I had to read it a second time. I think I was reading too much into it the first time!

    It is an obscure form of poetry. I explained the definition of it in Mondo 1.

    Thanks Eileen! When you're in the woods, at least, it can be beautiful.

    Happy you could work past that :) Syllables can be a tricky foe when writing these shorties...
