Photo Challenge #220

You can check on today’s challenge below:

Image by Silvia Grav
She wakes,
Her sister at her back.
Together as
Sun and Moon
They hold the key to
Earth’s continuance.
When night is sleepy,
Angry seas rise up
To torment the land
Engulfing the shore,
Beams cascade in a reduced
Crescent of starlight.
Those stars, long dead,
Were children of the Sky,
Moon’s canopy too shallow
To save them.
Sun’s breath brings forth life
And hope for another dawn,
Though it is hard to admit
She is finding it more
Difficult to breathe.
Consumed by her own heat,
Soon she will shatter,
Her seed scattered
Throughout the Universe
As the Earth turns to black.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  1. Reblogged this on pensitivity101 and commented:

    Every so often I go through my poetry and came across this which I was rather pleased with.
    I still am, so thought it worth a reblog and hope new readers enjoy it
