Dancers and Dreamers (Poem for a Prompt)

Dancers and Dreamers
Played out
between shadows
and hidden innuendo
comes Brother Angst
and Sister Longing
clothed and heavily robed
in habits
not easily broken

  3. Reblogged this on Views From A Poet and commented:

    There’s a great prompt about Angst and Longing going on over at CSB – here is my offering – take a look at so many others….https://neverendingstorydepository.wordpress.com/

  4. I want to go watch them dance. This is beautiful!
