Tri-tanka XI – Shining

by Jem Croucher

4 of 7 for Tri-Tanka week

Throughout and shining
lighting night into morning
driven by the sun
solar for the twinkling time
little lights to guide the way

Iridescent here
friend to nightlife passing by
foxes and the like
clamour to the twinkling time
here for them and here for me

Luminescence
guaranteed here night by night
diamond-like it
glows here for the twinkling time
echoing the stars above
