A Light in the Night

Nativity

A world in darkness

Laid silently

Until Heaven arrived

Into the silence

Of the night

A Light came forth

Syllable Lunes

Alert!

Triolet poem about the family coming to visit
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

NaPoWriMo–Day 18– “prompt, which takes us from 2015 back to the 1700s. After all, it’s the eighteenth of April, which means that today is the 240th anniversary of the midnight ride of Paul Revere! Today, in keeping with the theme of rush and warning, I challenge you to write a poem that involves an urgent journey and an important message. It could historical, mythical, entirely fictional, or memoir-ical.”

This Triolet is my take on today’s NaPoWriMo prompt!  Can anyone relate? 🙂

June’s Arrival

Favored month of mine,
You arrived yesterday In a burst of sunshine.
Bringing sun to replace the shade,
Such an entrance you made!
The sight of you warmed my heart.
I can’t wait for our visit to start.
