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 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.
