Night Waltz

winter night

image link

Fandango’s FOWC is pair, and the Word of the Day Challenge is waltzing.


The other night

while fast asleep

faire music did I hear

I pinched myself

to be assured

no dream it was

’twas clear

I stumbled groggy

from room to room

all was as it should be

I looked outside

the back window

and there what I did see

but a glowing ember

in the gloom.


Shoved on my boots

and wrapped with coat

I opened the back door

I heard the music clearly now

much louder than before.

Banjo, pipe,

and drumming sounds

from out near the barn

the glow did light from

within and without

and lent the grave night

some charm

‘Twas then I noticed

upon the snow was

a cast of blood red gleam.


The Super Blood

Wolf Moon, bewitching

field and stream,

called dark creatures

of the night to the dance

in this waking dream.

I hugged myself, pulled

down my hat, and

gingerly picked my way

to the barn window

to gaze upon the minions

colorfully arrayed

A pair of owls was waltzing

and so were a pair of fox

A Wolf Trio Played.


My freezing limbs

soon grew warm


by their twirls

The snow began

to kick and waltz in

graceful whirls and curls.

My eyelids soon grew

heavy as dawn began

to creep

before I saw the sun arise

I was fast asleep.

They found me in

the morning,

a gleaming sunny day,


Wrapped in a blanket

of white crystalline snow

at play with the sun,

twinkling like diamonds.
