Darkness

#Writephoto #Darkness

Due to a change in Ra’s schedule

Arrangements were made to entertain the wildlife

Rainclouds danced about in the changing sky, but they

Kept on calling for the sun to stay about

Night time wasn’t fun for most of the animals in the fields

Exception ? those living under ground who would

Surface, during the dark hours for a

Snack or two.

Salford 23rd June 2020

Lighting up the darkness

as the Sun dips below the horizon

night-time seems an awful lot friendlier with

them , as they brighten the dark gloom

enlightening any stroll in the

rolling dark blue shades of

night-time, until Luna pops up behind a cloud

Haunted forest ?

a likely story !

up till now – she’d believed the tales her brother told her

not realising ,

the creatures in their homes in the trees were

even more frightened of her – and in the

dark – it was just the forest creatures looking out

Silhouette

Some call him a shadowy figure

If you look at the wall carefully enough and

Look, you may just recognise him

He definitely has a definable shape

Of course – you would have a problem catching the real him

Unless you find the door or window that’s casting his form

Even then – he may be standing far away

The Moon casting his form on the wall

Take a look behind you – there’s nobody there – he’s

Exited the room under cover of darkness

Daily Prompt: Eclipse

 

via Daily Prompt: Eclipse

Eclipse

The day the earth went dark

the moon decided to be centre stage

passing by the sun god

and turning him into his little friend

till the moon got bored

and the sun it roared….

Dark and Light

Darkness

Satellite in the earths sky
lights up the darkness
as one half swaps the sun with the other
casting its shimmering net over the water
And out of the darkness
from behind the trees and bins
furry shadows are sharpened
by the dusting of light from the moon
Pawprints disperse in the dockside puddles
as suppertime treats await
from the fisherman’s throwaways

 

And Moonlight skips over dock and quay
passing over gardens and trees
creating a eerie midnight scene
where once the great ships had been

As moonlight skips over marshmallow clouds
light flickers through the velvet of night
silence only broken

by the nightshift coming home

And as felines feast
Luna keeps watch
till the sound of the cockerel
and return of the sun
