Seen and Unseen

Colleen’s weekly challenge

Dusk tells portends of its arrival
whispers dark as obsidian
thoughts and secrets awaken
sparkling with appetite
bold and unabashed
thriving beneath
shadowed veils
and cloaked
schemes
A time
when shyness
fades into dreams
And realms of desire
fade within moonlight’s beam
Strewn upon the velvet blackness
red, blue and yellow stars alight
hidden emotions come out to play
when dark and light meld upon the night sky


Theme prompt: The Night Sky

        Seriously, Anita wouldn’t touch a computer if her life depended on it. She has all the ideas but I do most of the donkey work!
