Half vs Full

The  forbearance of leaving

My friends at the half

Seemed logical


There’s a new princess

Due anytime now

the Poetess thought


As her heart longed for words

Long after midnight


That magical time

where headphones rock her

through to the morning light



Though not through her plight

those Word Temptresses

Still sauntering by

Clasping my hand

Saying “come let’s write”

  1. Oh, I love this! There’s such a sense of moving through languorous late night hours towards new words and a new life. I love the image, too, of the headphones rocking you ‘through to the morning light.’ Beautiful!
