Last Night – a poem developed from some old haikus

Last Night

Last night

I watched

Frayed threads of the horizon

Unravel into dusk

On a mission

To stitch up night’s shadows

Into a black velvet backdrop

For an embrace

Two moons face to face

In between our lips

An empty space

Waiting to be filled

By a kiss

Two moons in the sky

This is the first poem I have developed from some of the scribbles I have shared on this blog, following an article by Helena Nelson32 WAYS OF REVIVING A REJECTED POEM, which I wrote about on 7th November. I won’t be submitting it to a competition, so I thought I’d share the results of my first attempt at resuscitation.
