Last Night's Secret

A sudden darkness veiled the world below. Luna was defused by a shadowed sky, giving cause for Earth to be wrought with woe. Something strange caused the night to go awry as a shroud covered moonlight's golden glow. My pulse quickened at the phenomenon. I inhaled the floral scent of roses. Snowflakes drifted over garden and lawn. Like a fairytale that one composes, it was a magical scene to dwell on. Stars were dancing around the somber moon. The brightest ones provided enough light to see them twirling to a rhytmic tune. What a spectacle I witnessed tonight; stars waltzing and snow in the month of June! With drooping eyelids, I soon fell asleep, awakened when dawn's fingers touched my face. At the window I sat, ready to weep. Of snow and roses, there was not a trace. The tale of last night I'll secretly keep. December 1, 2020 Quintain - Sicilian Poetry Contest Sponsored by Emile Pinet

Despite the sadness at the end, I read your poem with great care and noticed that your phrases and structure culminating into the end were magnificent. It is the way I would wish to write, but not always managed it. Great poem. ~~

An amazing dream Jenna, how often we wake up and try and get back into the dream, sadly it never works out that way. Good luck Tom

Good morning, Tom. Yes...I'm awake. lol So true about never picking up a dream where we left it by waking. More's the pity.

Good morning, John, and thanks for sharing the thought that I'm not the only one who has weird dreams. This one was real...umm, a realistic dream.
