Poetry, I do suppose,

Is feeling molded into prose.
A metaphor or simile
And there you have it: poetry.

Daybreak Daydreams

Today's post is a short poem that I hope to turn into a villanelle.

If perchance I sleep tonight
Keep the lanterns burning bright.
I am off to other worlds –
I have other fights to fight.

If morning breaks and I am gone
Do not fret – I won't be long.
I'll send my love on evening's tide
To greet you at the crack of dawn.
