On A Cold Autumn Night

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 26
Write a shine poem.

The blue in the black of his hair,
like an ice floe in a dark sea.
Luminance under light of moon
on Autumn night with Winter chill.

Like an ice floe in a dark sea
he ended our rich romance.
On Autumn night with Winter chill
Ice gripped my heart, lamppost light glared.

He ended our rich romance;
I stood rooted, wanting to run.
Ice gripped my heart, lamppost light glared,
moon glow paled to sickly white.

I stood rooted, wanting to run
from that blue in the black of his hair.
Moon glow paled to sickly white,
luminance lingered no more.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
