Her beach walk was at midnight
Moon and stars her only light
She came across a sand castle
She thought a life with no hassle
Morning dawned and hid the stars
A blazing sun revealed scars
While darkness lured her to a pledge
Now she sees a cliff’s edge
A stretch of sand under the moon
Can be a Sahara Desert’s rune
Be wary of light that only appeases
More than one is beguiled by a brain teaser
Linking up with Dversepoets.com (Thursday open link) and Linda Kruschke Paint Chip Poetry.
Today’s theme comes from page 154 of volume 1 of 1000 Quotable Poems. The theme poem title is “The Country Faith” by Norman Gal. You have these seven paint chip words and phrases to work with: brain teaser, midnight, beach walk, dumpling, castle, cliff’s edge, and Sahara. Please use at least five of these in your poem. For extra bonus points, write your poem in rhyming couplets.
I managed to use 6 words and in rhyming couplets.
