Month of Poetry – NIGHT – Lantern #Poem – #MoP14

17 Jan




In calm dark

Sleeps a dreamer


I had hoped this wouldn’t happen, but the ultra-intensive, dream picture book writing course that I’m taking in conjunction with this and another challenge is beginning to demand more and more of my attention and hard work. I’ve waited so long to be able to take it and I’m learning so much in such a compact amount of time, that I just can’t let it take a back seat.

Usually, dashing off a children’s poem helps me unwind at the end of a day or first thing in the morning, but today I’ve got nothing.

I want to stay committed to this challenge though, so I hope you won’t mind if I post my most popular poems of the past here and there. I just wanted to give a heads up that if a poem sounds familiar…it probably is!

Thanks for understanding! :0)

    Works great for me too! I probably missed many of them. Do what you need to. I’ll be by to enjoy them:)
    This one is soothing for me. Don’t know what it is, but I feel calm and centered right now. Thanks for that!

      I’m happy you like it; it’s one of my favorites. Goes 1 syllable, 2 syll., 3, 4, 1. It’s supposed to look like a lantern shape typed out.
