April - NaPoWriMo - 9

Dark walker crossing the deep divide
You’ve made the chasm wide then campfire lit
Where winter’s torches hide, where silence sits
Entrancing darkness haunting deep divides.

You’ve made the chasm wide, relit
Heart-fire and soft-strummed music, fit the sound
To stow with dancing marionnettes around
This chasm where the campfire’s lit.

With strumming music’s flitting sound
Dark walking overhauling deep divides
Recalling startled night’s domain was mine
His talons strumming music’s hidden sound.

Dark walkers crossing deep divides
With winter’s torch to hide in summer’s pail
Be-fringed with poet’s dance the shadows hail
My name limp-writ beneath where music hides.

I always get a kick out of the random word prompts. You never know what is going to show up. I like "his talons strumming music's hidden sound"

Well done, Sheila! I like the way you began with "dark walker." And your last stanza is just brilliant. This is a wonderful piece and I'm in awe that you took this difficult prompt and wrote a drabble!
