The slide…they head toward the swings

Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Lost Sparkles Senryu Strings

I’ve lost my sparkle
Another lights up your mind
My words in black veil 

Nostalgia reminds
Muses reign for a short time
Prophecy fulfilled

I will not accept
“Has been muse” not my label 
A whispered goodbye

No Goodbye

Not saying goodbye

Ghouls glide through with ease
