A moment before I sleep #3 One Poem a Day US Nat'l Poetry Month

4 posts in this topic

#3 US National Poetry Month is April, Poets challenged to write one poem a day for the month of April.

 

A moment before sleep

 

This early April sky,

grey darkened by night,

moistened by recent rain

and cooled by a north wind,

invites me to lower my lids

and drift into the starlight

that prinks its plain.

Prinks was an unusual choice Tink, but I think plays nicely with plain.

Thanks Badger, I have used the word a few times in poems I have written. "prink" is an archaic word but I have loved it since I discovered it. As in this poem, it seems a perfect substitute for "decorated' which is a clunky word. I'm on a mission to revive "prink" to its rightful place among fun sounds.
