Sammi’s Weekender #272 (dazzling)

Click this pic for more dazzling 53-word wonders.

Candled Darkness

She dazzled—
blindingly brilliant.

I was humbled, dim and dull—
overwhelmed by sadness and shame.

Yet, in her glitter and gleam,
She loved my blackened heart,

kept me close, when other
men were blinded by her glare

She smiled.

Au contraire, mon amour.
Darker nights make brighter stars,
the moon shines even more.


Look both ways but listen with an open heart.
Mind the gaps for that’s where stars shine brightest.

Caption me.

    1. Hmmm. Zabernism, zaftig, zappy, zeistrix, zizz, zeitgeist, zealot,. I used zymurgy once. Zain, zippo, and more. But not a lot to choose from. Take the challenge, Peter. 🙂

  1. I love the title and the whole story poem, Bill. Opposites attract; or rather, one touches the other. Beautifully done. I absolutely love the last stanza.
