Today’s assignment involves:
What say you? Once more into the breech?
Diaphanous ghosts were dancing in the distant light;
Swirling twirling as I sat entranced,
eyes drooping with heavy sleep.
Red dotted their airy gowns as
they slowly pirouetted on a dime.
And they were gone.
Vanished, leaving me behind.
Well, that doesn’t feel like an elegy…and it wasn’t quite what I wanted to write about.
Shall I try again?
In that night before the dawn,
smoke swirled around in the distance.
Lights blinked on and off, peaking through
the fog. I slowly wake up,
the dream fading from memory;
leaving me bleary eyed and tired.
Well, you can’t say that I didn’t try!
