April Poem A Day - Day 6




I can't believe it is already Day 6 of PAD and I am enjoying this very much. This year I really need this outlet, because so much is happening in my life that is making me very unhinged.:) However, there is always poetry and it is keeping me calm. This is also posted on Poetic Asides. You can see many great poems there too.

Prompt: Write a poem about Night


Night is My Place
The night is my place
quiet so you can hear the
freezer churning as it works
making ice cubes
Night is a blank canvas where words
swirl and find their way to
the screen as time ticks
and life occurs outside my windows
as I savor the emptiness
of no interruptions and peace
Night is my place for me
I dance in the void and
savor the simple essence
of myself while others sleep
my wayward mind weaves
thoughts into verses and prose
