What a pleasant surprise it was to return home from a mini vacation on beautiful Prince Edward Island, and find that Jinksy had chosen one of my doodles from Running With Crayons to use as prompt. She also presented us with a creation of her own, which I chose to use to prompt some poetry this morning.
Hope you enjoy it and if you find the time, visit us at InTandem#8 and share your take on the images.
The Coming of Night
The raging lion bleeds into twilight
Washing out the sky in violet dreams
While marshmallow clouds cast shadows
Upon these gentle lands of green.
Blades of grass rise up to sing
In honor of this rare light
And trees bow low in gentle breeze
To welcome coming night
Lavender hills rise up to meet
Twilight sky in splendid glory
Children run to jump on laps
Preparing bedtime stories
All is well and all is good
As raging lion dips from sight
And dreams are set to crickets’ song
The coming of the night.
