Indigo Six

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
and indigo’s in sight
The sixth one in the rainbow
reminiscent of the night

Deepest blue as evening fades
and quieter hours reign
Holding banquet to the hours

Little Lights

by Jem Croucher

Surrounded by darkness
as night settles in
Little pinpricks of light
point to where I have been
As with power from the sunlight
they get by the day
they come alive in the darkness
to light up my way

Night Sky

by kim blades, writer

Tonight the sky’s darkness

is brightened by a moon bright and full

that quite overwhelms the sprinkled stars

whose continuous twinkle on the Milky Way

is tonight a softer, more wistful glimmer.

The Meet

by Tanya

Amidst the chaos,
You and I
Fell again for each other..

When our evanescent space
Felt like our little own world
And our eyes
Met and the love unfurled..

The Shape of You (Rae’s Song Revisited)

by braveandrecklessblog

Tiny white lights twinkle

nocturnal noises provide a rhythm

for conversation’s give and take

We wrap each other gently in words

painting a night sky canvas together

giving glimpses

of our separate worlds

universes apart

searching for my eyes

but it’s me who looks away

Turn the Night On

by braveandrecklessblog

This is a collaboration between S Francis (SailorPoet) and Christine Ray (Brave and Reckless)
Won’t you stay,

Outside snow falls steady
Gusted by north wind
Tapping at our window
Inside these walls
A fire burns

The Time Tonight!

by Tanya

I untied my hair
Swiftly carressed with my fingers
Fell on the bed
Magnetised by the pillow!

Looked up to see
And out of the big window
Ah! What a sight!
I stared and glared!

A Bed-ly Thought

by Tanya

The air is calm,
As I can’t feel it on my palm..
The lights are dim,
So, I start to hymn..

I close my eyes-
My wings of butterflies,
A sheet covers me,
So I rest my knee..

Tall

by A. Marie

It is eleven, and we are the early night.
Daddy hasn’t forgiven our existence yet,
Daddy hasn’t gotten out of the car,
Daddy doesn’t remember how to change a tire,
Daddy doesn’t love us at all;
Mommy won’t come outside into the daylight,
Mommy won’t wander the halls until we sleep,
Mommy doesn’t remember how to drink wine
Without spending the next 24 hours dreaming.
