Moon kissed silver curling

Glowing as moonbeams lance from above


Fireworks bloom

Against a purple sky

Dark as the skin of an aubergine


Winds scatter

Rainclouds that drift awry

No children are hiding in shadows


Trick or treat

Star shine watches below

Shadows hang dripping wet from tree limbs

My last poem of OctPoWriMo 2020! I have so enjoyed writing this month, as I have for the past few years. A wonderful challenge!


The prompt suggested writing about light, dark and shadow and I chose the poem form Parallelogram de Crystalline
