Darkness before Dawn (tanka/haiku)*

silence deafening~

walking street devoid of life~

memories follow~

shadows now hidden away~

waiting deaths incubus leave

~

ally nightly fears~

faithful conviction brings light~

unites world in hope~

*Note: I give you this note worthy quote:

It is always darkest just before the day dawneth.” –  Thomas Fuller**

The song choice is Sounds of Silence, however I did not choose the original by Simon & Garfunkel (apologies to the purists out there :).

This rendition by the Pentatonix is beautiful (amazing harmony and individuality of the voices). 🌎✌🏻🀍

** Thomas Fuller was an English churchman and historian. He is now remembered for his writings, particularly his Worthies of England, published in 1662 after his death. He was a prolific author, and one of the first English writers able to live by his pen. Wikipedia

Eugi's Weekly Prompt – Winsome – March 2, 2020

Rocking Horse Triplets

cherished they once were

delightful enjoyment

rocking back and forth

~~~~~

children’s laughter heard

joyfully filling a room

merrily ridden

~~~~~

abandoned lonely

darkened alley now their home

they no longer rock

small ones quickly out grew them

hoping they would be rescued

~~~~~

joy they still could bring

to children with very little means

treasured once again
