Galilei



Push aside the curtain of day
looking to eternal night:
breathless sight.
Longing sigh, clutch the sky;
hold me to you tight.
Smitten with the inky blue
I give this night to you.

This is for IGwRT Sunday Mini-challenge.  The challenge is to use the rhyme and meter form created by Paul Lawrence Dunbar.  Specifics can be found at the site. Go read what everyone did and give it a try!

  1. I like the joining of the eternal night, sky and lover, clutching, holding tight, giving and taking...and all in fine form. Lovely stars in that photo, too...who wouldn't want a gift like that?

  4. Such a night
    To take flight
    Is a sight
    And you rhymed just right
