AN ELFJE SERIES: DUSK CHASING DAWN

In Appreciation
My gratitude goes beyond the humble thank you for the help Jules Paige has given me in getting my head around a magical, new to me poetry format, a link, kindly supplied by Jules herself (  Grinning Face on Microsoft Windows 10 Anniversary Update sorry ): About|Simply Elfje by Elizabeth Leaper (2012), very helpful!  I have put as an example, the last Elfje of a series, written by Jules, to help me, as much as anyone who might have an inkling to have ago themselves, be advised, check the link out first. Happy Elfjeing! I can not, not say it, thank you Jules,
Mick

Daylight dwindles
Fingers trace the
air writing poems until
Dawn

An Elfje Series: Dusk Chasing Dawn
Dusk
Nightingale sings
Lullabies lulling sleep
Dulcet melodies until morning
Dawns

Dusk
Evening song
Church bells ringing
Choirs singing in the
Dawn

Dusk
Starling murmurations
In their thousands
drop to roost until
Dawn

Dusk
Lover whispering
I want you
Then makes love till
Dawn

Dusk
Darkness advancing
The sun sets
Full moon shines till
Dawn

Dusk
moving light
Hark nocturnal sounds
Nightingales singing in the
Dawn

  1. I wish ‘Libby’ was still accepting submissions (she has more or less closed down the site, thankfully keeping up the very important instructions). I am honored and impressed.
    I really like how you copied yet transformed the pattern I used, which was inspired by your own words. The way you circled back to the Nightingales…very much a romantic lullaby.

    When we learn from each other we circle back, embrace and trill like the nightingale –
    bringing us soothing dreams in our different realities.

    While a different type of Cause Affect and Effect
    You might enjoy this prompt inspired Twiglet. Though not short – sometimes the words just flow.
