Thursday photo prompt – Tryst #writephoto

What a gorgeous photograph to work with this week Sue. Those violets in the sky are fabulous.
Here is the challenge this week

feb-16-trystAmethyst clouds envelop a night sky,
Velvet cushions for diamonds
To appear after dark.
A perfect evening for secret lovers to meet,
This secluded place,
Silent and still.
The distant caress of a wave on the shore,
A kiss on the breath of the wind,
Whispering messages of
Wishes and trust,
Time waits for none or
Time waits for all.

Footsteps gently disturb tender moss,
Ahead, there is no guiding lantern,
But the presence and warmth
Of true love had been cast,
They timidly and tenderly embrace.

Shots echo through the witnessing trees:
As two hearts start to slow,
Two hands join in the blood,
The cold dagger of jealousy
Uniting these two souls forever.
Blue eyes fathom sorrow
From new depths never felt,
Twisted fate has come calling:
Not his wife.
Nor his brother.
Two young lovers,
Mere children,

Now dead by his hand.

With grief in his heart,
He lays them to rest,
Under amethyst clouds in the night sky.
In this place of secluded silence,
In the dark,
Diamonds fall from his eyes.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
