For the first time in a long, long time
she felt beautiful in her eyes
her lips red from his kisses
arms warm from his embrace
long after he left
the bed still warm
but only
where he
lay

To Weave

You just inherited a dilapidated, crumbling-down grand mansion in the countryside. Assuming money is no issue, what do you do with it?

Fix it, paint it, then call it my home
this is the place I’ll call my own
in the countryside where the
mornings, bliss; dreams bestowed
by sweet Seshat’s kiss,
to write, to read,
so many
tales to
weave.

Daily Prompt

Thief (A Nonet)

Falling in shadow, the moon’s aglow,
awash in red, and then it bled
long streaks of silver, having
pilfered its ghostly sheen,
reflecting its gleam
till the dark claimed
its light, thief
in the
night.
