Bad Moon Rising

May 27, 2012 Writing 18

The moon with its soft light aglow

A crescent rimmed with red

This is the beginning of the end.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The weekend challenge from Trifecta was: Three choices.  Inspired by all of the poetry entries we’ve had recently, we challenge you to write a poem of your own in either 33 words, 3 lines or 3 stanzas.

These are my 3 lines inspired by the gorgeous crescent moon last night. Please share your thoughts in a comment because feedback is wanted and appreciated here.

Thanks for stopping in!

    Excellent writing, with many meanings.

  5. “Aglow” makes me think happy, gentle thoughts, so I like how it was the beginning of the end – took me for surprise.
    Came from Trifextra.

    Cue the vampires… Or maybe a werewolf 🙂

  7. I feel like this character looked down from sky to earth with firm resolve. Whatever ending is coming, this is a persona facing it squarely.
