Magicking

Light vanishes as,

Velvety darkness descends,

Unaccompanied,

An array of stars take guard,

Radiant on new moon night,

On those days of pale,

Tenebrous* phenomena,

Crystal ball shines dim,

Trickle of light magnifies,

Magicking self to magical cosmos.

Tenebrous * :- Dark, shadowy.

Poetry Form :- Double Tanka (Two sets of 5/7/5/7/7 syllables.)

Thoughts :- When a carpet of darkness descends, in some corner there is a light awaiting to shine. That light is us.

Acknowledgements :- Thank you Eugi for running the Eugi’s Weekly Prompt Challenge. The word for the week is crystal ball. Thank you Colleen. M. Chesebro for running the Colleen’s 2020 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No # 197, #SPECIFICFORM: TANKA. The challenge for the week is to write a Tanka poem.
