Magpie Tales ~ The Portal!



Another adventure into wordsmithing over at The Mag!  What a fun  prompt!

Between Heaven and Hell, 1989 by Jacek Yerka


My take on this rich painting!




The Portal

She roams the night
Senses on fire...
tuned to the tides.
On the edge of sanity.

She roams the night
Shades inky black....
footfalls are silent.
Keen eyes alerted.

She roams the night
Holding the keys....
rattling nerves.
Shackling dreams.

She roams the night
Keen eyes wary....
watching the heavens.
Awaiting any movement.

She roams the night
Silently guarding....
challenging the light.
Fearing no man.

She roams the night
Spying her prey....
what can we say?
She is guarding the night!

  4. Great form, with the first line repeating. I really like this stanza:
    She roams the night
    Holding the keys....
    rattling nerves.
    Shackling dreams.
