The World Vanished [blackout poetry]

The World Vanished by jk 12th Oct 2015

The World Vanished
By Jennifer Kiley
12th Oct. 2015

Most places
now were hard
Light the shadow
across the moon

Higher I became –
the world vanished
Whispers of dreams
Enchanted the presence

An aesthetic desire
Face the last wonder
Light the way

This dream seemed
so close
Could grasp it

The dark night
Recedes before us

Stretch farther
Beat back the past

The Moving Glow
By Jennifer Kiley
5th October 2015

The moving glow of the moon
I became aware of her eyes
Whisper of human dreams
A transitory moment

Held the presence in contemplation
Desire to face for the last time
Something unknown
A dream so close
Could hardly fail to grasp it

Somewhere in that dark night
The future recedes before us
It eluded us — No matter
Tomorrow will stretch out farther
Beat on against the current
Ceaselessly, into the past

The End

Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge #66 – Words: Pine & Grief

A weekly Haiku writing prompt to inspire those who join along. It is like putting together a word puzzle carefully. It is enlightening. Meet new people. Discover a community who shares support. At the end of each challenge we hear from Ronovan on his interpretation of how we all succeed. Sometimes it’s a review with words of support and sometimes it’s a list of all the participants with LINKS to their Haiku. Oh, it is an awakening experience to read what others have created with the two words for each new weekly challenge. If you feel such inspiration. Go to the LINK Ronovan Writes Haiku (above)… Join a growing community. It is exciting to look forward each Monday to the two new words and then figuring out how to mold them into a Haiku. – jk-tsk
