A Wayra for dVerse Poets

dVerse Poets: Wayra Form

Ten Minutes After Dinner (draft version 1)

He is in a sleep
of see-saw, he breathes softly,
a rise and fall of his chest.
A light rumbling comes
from his throat. I turn off the moon.

Turn Off the Light (draft version 2)

He is in a sleep 
of see-saw, he breathes softly, 
a rise and fall of his chest. 
Light shaves across his face,
I quietly turn off the moon.

  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous work done, Misky! I especially love; “A light rumbling comes from his throat. I turn off the moon.”💝💝

  2. I love both version, Misky. “Turn off the moon”: I don’t think I’ve heard a more evocative phrase for the end of the day, the end of romance but not the end of tenderness.
