Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Gratitude” June 1, 2020

New Moon –

In lockdown, bright sunny days are lures to resist.

The flush of spring was without fanfare, the blooms are on their own

No leisurely stroll under cherry blossoms this spring. Nature tips the scale.

 

a new moon
the earth feels tilted
up is down

Times Square

No one left and no one came on the bare platform
The energetic buzz is at a ghostly halt

Gone is the mad rush, missing is the human storm
Beating heart of the city, with no rhythm to flaunt

Ended up practicing my couplets instead of being true to the prompt*.

Linking to OLN over at dVerse Poets Pub

*Loosely based on the prompt over at dVerse Poets Pub where Sarah is hosting. She asked for prosery..a flash fiction piece with no more than 144 words. the following line to be included in the prose:-

“No one left and no one came on the bare platform”.

The lines are lifted from Adelstrop by Edward Thomas.
