GloPoWriMo Nocturne Adrift in Chopin’s Op. 9 No. 2 41717

Nocturne

Adrift in Chopin’s Op. 9 No. 2

 

Before the dark line of twilight

Erases light into dark,

Gaze unto earth's beauty

Bees flittering

Birds chattering

Bugs scattering

With dark's

cold

coming

on;

Look.

Yellow

Of balsam root

Green

Of Dutch elm

Orange

Of clouds in sunset

Blue

Of flowing river and

Hold.

  

Hold.

 

Hold

The breeze

Bathing yellow petals

In the last of sun's warmth as

Bees

Buzz softly on the wind's

Wings

As birds float to tattered

Nests

On wind's strength;

Bugs

Dash beneath the breeze

Hiding beneath pebbles;

  

Hold

light''s

sights

Tight

When

Dark

Winds

howl

On moonless nights.

 

Hold

 

And you'll know

All flow onward

Even in dark

Anticipating

Dawn

retracing

reopening

its line

of

light.
