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


Recommended Posts

#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.

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.
