Dark Sky

dark skyDark Sky

Black and foreboding
Creeping silently
To eliminate the day
Like a dark curtain
Coming down
On the final act
Of the sun.
No moon to guide,
Stars hide
Too shy to show
Their spark of light
On this chilly night.
Shadows rise and fall
Depicting shapes
Some large, some small
Some not there at all
A figment of imagination.
In hours to come,
The first rays of the sun
Will cast the dark aside.
Let us welcome
The Dawn.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
