Hello there folks.
On to Day 5 of National Poetry Writing Month (not too far behind thank goodness).
The prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ for Day 5 was to come up with a villanelle poem.
If you too would like to play along then here is the link to the prompt.
This is not the first time that I have written a villanelle, so why not take a look at a previous one that I did here:-
And finally here is my poem, thank you for reading and hope you enjoy it.
“For Our Kind In Starlight” by David Ellis
Let’s keep the moon awake all night
Allowing the tugging of stars to hammer at our heartstrings
Making romance out of all the noise found in our souls
At peace with the universe, falling head over heels for every little detail
If only you knew there were others like you, it would give you wings
It’s a crime to take a single breath without the right appetite
Whatever you give to people will be returned without fail
You won’t ever be sorry for all the happiness your smile brings
Giving into the beauty all around us, knowing how hidden rainbows too have roles
Make time for the struggle and remember to always let kindness prevail
Yesterday is for dreaming, unwrapping the very core of our musings
The pain of celebration after progression gets easier with foresight
You are always enough, your hope and spirit are bolder than any cocktail
We must never be confined by the depths of our misunderstood endings
Never safe while being restrained, no-one thrives from being kept from the cockpit of their own controls
Save the world by saving yourself from a life that is stale
Show me what you believe in until your heart sings
Paint a picture for our kind in starlight
The power of your rhythm is clear, your face in the clouds as you achieve all your goals
