Guard Spires – Poetry Prompt #15

image: “Starry Night” by Vincent Van Gogh
 Time stands suspended,
Lights slow in movement, I see
Happiness is more.
Below the moon rests
People after day of work.
Dreams are so fluid.
Color glint spires
Twist up into the night sky
And guard the dreamers.

Written for the WeDrink Poetry Prompt this week:

I love stars and anything to do with the sky…

  1. A perfect guard for us dreamers, indeed! I love your take on the artwork, it is always amazing and special to see how every person in the world sees it and what it inspires in them.

  3. I really like the opening stanza, and how you’ve made the connection between “happiness” and “dreams” through your pattern of lines.
