Darkness and Light – a san san

I saw Jane Dougherty’s NaPoWriMo post, checked out  Christine Cochrane’s blog and played around with (for me) the new poetic form of the san san.


In the immensity of North Norfolk nights,

Jupiter sits low in the sky after sunset,

Its moons set like diamonds on either side.

Along the coast, a festoon of twinkling lights,

Showering debris of a burning comet

And charged particles of the aurora

Igniting the atmosphere of the North Sea tide,

Embellish the waves with a ghostly shimmer.
