a midnight sigh

A traveler

Alone

But for a memory

That never left

The warm moments

By a fireside

With a soft

And simple way

About her

He did remember

Alone

A midnight sigh

And howling moon

For a smile

He could not

Forget

Hazel eyes

That stayed true 

And a mouth that

Melted

He did remember

Alone


This poem is inspired by the Go Dog Go Cafe Tuesday Prompt Challenge. This is an older prompt from February(midnight sigh) but going through these helps spark my imagination. After re-reading, I must have been feeling very forlorn! Something about the word ‘sign’ sparked this idea of wishing and hoping for something else. What do you think about the poem? What does the word “sigh” spark in your imagination?
