When Comes The Night

after the sordid day
rain recalls the language of music

and I go, leaving frenzied voices behind
to bed beneath magnetic star spray

to see above the thousands
while I hear the lake moon moan

when can I live life
as ripe peach sky?

  1. This is such a tranquil poem, Ali. Like Magarisa, I also like the phrase ‘magnetic star spray’ It reminds me of beautiful rain falling down on a warm summer’s day, and also sitting underneath a captivating star lit sky. A lovely sky always lifts our moods and spirits, and that’s magic. Hope you are doing well over there 🙂


      1. It is my absolute pleasure dear friend. I truly am fortunate to read your words along with so many talented writers like yourself. Have a wonderful day.
        Ps, happy Halloween 🎃


    1. Carrie,
      I really enjoyed the challenge of using the words given and moving them around. This final poem was a rewrite of the magnetic poem I wrote. I wanted to share a picture of it but I couldn’t figure out how. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think.
      Love to you my friend.
