Napowrimo Day 16
Write a nocturne. In music, a nocturne is a composition meant to be played at night, usually for piano, and with a tender and melancholy sort of sound. Your nocturne should aim to translate this sensibility into poetic form!
Night lead me by the hand
as we climb a twinkling staircase of stars.
Darkness cover me. Tuck me in.
Place a goodnight kiss on my forehead.
Shadows close my heavy eyes.
Guide me into sleep.
Dreams waltz with me
across an endless sky of velvet black.
Stillness soothe my mind.
Sing me a lullaby of moonlit melody.
Softness sway my soul.
Rock me gently with your sympathetic lilt.
Peacefulness rise and fall
with every breath, as I slip deeper
into restful slumber.
