Visitors

twilight

Evenings when you draw your shade
mist shadows writhe across your floor
formed from such stuff as dreams are made.
Evenings when you draw your shade
through closed eyelids things creep unbade
whispering till you sleep no more.
Evenings when you draw your shade
mist shadows writhe across your floor.

The following was composed to explain to a friend how a Triolet is structured. Since I don’t think it would stand on its own in a post, I include it as a bonus here.

Writing a Triolet

This line’s repeating three times now
while this line repeats only two.
This line gives you new ground to plow.
This line’s repeating three times now
as this line builds to show you how
this line completes your thought for you.
This line’s repeating three times now
while this line repeats only two.
