First Poems of the Year!
First, an administrative note: Crosses and Cradles will be hosting February's W&Q game. (Thanks again, Dauvit!)
And now for my first poem of the year--one that almost became a free verse love letter to a vampire lover. (Seriously. I'm not just saying that so that what I was actually able to produce looks better in comparison. Really!)
Question: Are you getting married in the morning?
Red sky at morning--a bridegroom's warning:
The bride has stepped out in a dress made of dawn.
The darkness turning--a maiden's yearning:
Her train flowing out with the light on the lawn.
Golden sky spreading--a start to the wedding:
Her canopy dyed with the serum of sun.
Day unto day calling--an ancient hush falling:
A blush to her cheeks and the trousseau is done.
And that's it for me! Link up your poems in the combox, please, as I can't wait to be shown up for the hack that I am!
