from her earring
is what she’s hearing.
The night so dark,
the moon so dim,
the streetlight sparks,
so she chants a hymn.

from the distance
his light an assistances.
The way he moves,
illuminates her way.
Together they groove,
by her side he stays.

onto her ankle
he softly dangles.
Safe and sound,
she’s back to her home.
He turns around,
and away he roams.

    Sorry I missed this one, STAR. I haven't been commenting too much recently, but I really did enjoy this and (naturally) loved the rhyming throughout!

    All the very best as ever

    The clink- clink reminded me of a poem I wrote a looooong time ago. Lol Funny how one or two words can spark a light in our memories. I liked the poem. For some unknown reason I find it cute. It might have been the effect the words bling-bling clink clink chink chink creates in me.

    Good one.
