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