GloPoWriMo: Day XVII: Nocturne

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to pen a Nocturne – a composition capturing or set to the spirit of the night, usually set to piano music – but as a poem. so if you fall asleep reading this dear readers, I suppose I’ll take it as a compliment : D

As an added element I suggest you put on your favourite nocturne, settle in, and then read on. NaPoWriMo suggests Chopin’s Op. 9 No. 2. Or you could listen to what I had playing in my head as I was writing – Brahm’s Lullaby.

Drift-less
Aimless
Like a grain of salt in the sea

Wafting
Flowing
A speck of sand in a desert breeze

Senseless
Thoughtless
What am I, What can I be?

Listless
Pointless
I am you and you are me

Standing
Waiting
I exist, still I seize

Awe-less
Ire-less
From these I am free
