Challenge Wednesday by Jeremy of The Boi Poet is back after a short break.This week’s lines of poetry are below and we are to link back to Jeremy:

  • the wise stars bedding over me – Young by Anne Sexton
  • Haunt me with deities I never saw – There May Be chaos Still Around The World by George Santayana
  • One day won’t we all have to be brave? – Greenwich by Kirsten Dierking

dec weds

Life

these stars flicker their luminescence

purging souls of their wantonness

we bleed from the scorching touch

cleansing ritual of old

these mad deities

haunting our dreams

we kowtow

 them as

lord

of

the skies

all-seeing

in their splendor

garnishing the moon

but shadows gather sheaves

our work is up for tally

and soon, won’t we have to be brave

when night portents the dimming of stars
