a placid evening sky ebony black

the 12 given words:
searching, door, story,
placid (serenely free of interruption or disturbance)
ebony waiting beneath hoping palm asleep powder cake

searching the conscience
the door to myriads of possibilities
with lots of stories to tell

a placid evening sky ebony black
darkly in shadows of guilt
not really aware
but waiting beneath heaven's
care hoping with all sincerity

can feelings of guilt be palmed down
by a mere utterance of denial?

one may be asleep in powdered
dreams caked in protective garb

still, it was no way to treat a lady
she deserved a fair hearing!

  1. Glad you posted to the prompt! Especially like the second stanza. Amazing images aren't they?

  2. Oh I do love this... what a wonderful night...

  3. Guilt can be a heavy burden to carry into the night. Is there innocence in the beauty of love?

  4. Love this, Hank, especially,

    'one may be asleep in powdered
    dreams caked in protective garb'

  5. Sometimes things can go astray due to our own doing.
