Happy National Poetry Day, New Zealand!

Not that knowing the day being somehow synonymous with poetry has any influence whatsoever on anyone’s happiness; just saying, happy…learning something new! I hereby decree today’s slogan; be extra perceptive, seize the day and be sure to capture yourself within it. Here’s a little somethin’ somethin’ I wrote just for the occasion:

~ S U N S E T   N I G H T I N G A L E S ~

Sitting alone
Glimmer of light kissing warmth over me
Don’t take too long my Tomorrow
I have nowhere else to be.

Birds,
Temp Death on the roads
Singing all day
Of the only songs of sorrow they know.

Nightingales,
Deliver me Dreams of delight.
Nightingales,
Save my Soul tonight.

Before the sun meets the dew
We are the same
Awakening to learn the repeated lesson;
Songs of any sorrow pale to songs of a single flame.

Nightingales,
I burn alive.
Nightingales,
I burn.
