“Curtain Falls” (posted by Sanaa)
Curtains. From a mundane household item to a haunting metaphor, their allure will envelop your spirit into the generous folds. When closed they instantly cast a room into blackness even on the brightest of days; while in winter they stand guard and protect us against the biting cold.
So, our challenge today is to write about curtains.
“…and the very folds of the curtains contained secrets and sighs.” -Anais Nin
When the sky draws closed
curtain of night
silver stars sparkle,
a butterscotch moon
tosses beams that flicker
through trees like a feast
When the curtain is drawn
some things are still visible.
