Take Five

orange fades
earth’s shadow falls
a turn of the heart
beneath a streetlamp
quiet sighs

a queen of spades
hides quietly
in the house
of sumptuous dreams
the gambler’s nightmare

a queen of hearts
blushes
a peony unfurls
he pours a glass of wine
pink silence sparkles

a queen adorned
in ice diamonds
beaded midnight velvet
crystal tears
melt into rose and blue

a clover queen
in emerald splendour
a sense of petrichor
lightning dances
on sky mountains

quiet sighs
beneath a full moon
another turn of the heart
clouds boast silver linings
rain drops laugh
