Darkness At Dawn - Poem by leonard daranjo

The dawn came
With a promise of great happiness
But you,
with your dragon breath,
You clouded the sky
Birds stopped singing
Flowers stopped blooming
Rivers stopped short
On their way to the ocean
While time lay trapped
In perma frost

    Strong dramatic penning Leonard. You manage to say much in such a few lines - now that's poetic! 'Dragon breath' works brilliantly, too. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    Excellent imagery which, to me, is what poetry is all about. Take care.

    Warm regards,
