I haven’t done a #writephoto for a couple of weeks, mainly because I’ve had a couple of quite insistent book ideas nagging at me, so have been focusing on them. Oh, and there was also the Blogger’s Bash this past weekend, where I had the great pleasure of seeing Sue, along with many other blogging friends – there is a post to come, hopefully this weekend, as it’s taken a few days for it all to sink in.
When I saw Sue’s photo prompt this week, words came to me straight away, and so here is my response to her lovely twilit hillside:
At night he comes
My lover sweet
As twilight steals across the land
As birds lie still
And shadows fall
I feel the caress of his hand
He comes in blue
He comes in gold
Like mist and smoke, a dream of rain
He stays with me
Till morning breaks
I know not if he’ll come again
I sit alone
My window wide
The sleeping hills like folds of blue
And violet deep
I hear your song
Beloved, do you hear mine too?
If you would like to respond to Sue’s prompt, you have until Wednesday June 21st to post a link or pingback – head over to Sue’s blog for more details.
