A young night’s passion (Waltz Wave & Sedoka)

by Meena Krish   Sep 21, 2017

night is
young, wind
is intense,
they graze
touch with
out touching
creating a
fever filled
rough moods
and thunder

patter upon earth,
beneath a canopy of
stars a new generation
is sown, the off springs
of tomorrow will rise to
reveal a young night’s passion!

    Meena, if it wasn't for people like you on this site writing formed poetry like this, I would never have tried my hand at anything, so thank you.

    Take care
