Microfiction Monday #65:




Fly me to the moon
sweet Silver
she softly sighs

My dear Blue
 light-though tempting
is my demise

Heartbroken
they murmur
reluctant goodbyes

Although I've seen "sigh" and "goodbye" linked I-don't-know-how-many times, I think "demise" fits in there perfectly, LOL. Great take on the prompt!

Way to go! And a perfect pic too.
Cheers, jj

Susan Fobes said...

Great job with the poetry for this one-alas, I did not attempt it, but I'm glad someone did!

Jim said...

Nice rhyming, Polly. Your heroine has high standards and high expectations. Those are the usual criteria for 'tough love' as we see here.

This is a great take on the pic for the day! Really sad, but beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Took one look at that picture last week and ran screaming. Bless you for making it work. You managed to stay out of the sci-fi realm. Truly amazing.

Peggy said...

Loved the poetry too, I wish I was as good as you are at it.
Nicely done!

It's nice to know that Mothman knows his limitations! Good one.
Have a great week. Cheers.

LOVED IT! although it is a sad poem as they have to say goodbye. Very nice and descriptive.

Michael G-G said...

Excellent work! I'm a sucker for anyhting to do with unrequited love (don't know why, as my love is requited. Past life?)

Have a great week.

And such is life. Although I'd never have thought of it with the local monster. ;) Nice.

Now you need toset it to music!

One just never knows where Love will appear. Wasn't it Tennyson that said? "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all". Fun look at Susan's picture

Willoughby said...

What an unusual picture! Your poetry fits it just perfectly!

blueviolet said...

It's just so silly to envision any type of conversation between them!

Akelamalu said...

A romantic but poignant 55. I like it. :)

gaelikaa said...

Oh, very sad!

samurai said...

I nearly spurted ice tea out my nose when i read your blogging profile! LOL

I too am "wannabe" artist - writing for me, i would like to run... but don't take the time to get back into shape and the kicker! A fellow Carolina Panther fan! Wahahaha - man what a tough year this year. We won't know which direction things will go until A) the collective bargaining agreement is reached, B) the (re)sign the free agents, C) they hire a new coach, and D) we get into the next season. LOL.

I liked your MFM story... a sad ending though. Alas, it was not meant to be.

God bless. \o
