Gloam

Sunset captured through brandy n cola

~*~*~

Rhythmic glitters
tinkling chime,
calling aloud
the ghosts of time.

Bleeding horizon
streaking blind,
ominous blue
retreating resigned.

Sounds of merry
none to be heard.
Cutting the vacuum
slithers a lizard.

Demonic symbols
of shadows arrive…
Graves speak
coming alive!

Harrowed waters,
bounds trashed;
swallowing beaches
fury unlashed.

A solitary jackal howls at a distance…

    Memory can be los lobo loco. At times it is not enough to live each day anew but each heart beat must be a new life.

    Jagged- and yet it flows. Definitely contrasting elements of mood and life…alcohol can do that -turn corners- ( I agree with your favorite book!)
