Timely Patrons

Timely Patrons

By Annalie Buscarino. 

Twilight kisses the lake,
her gentle lips smooth with honey.
She caresses the water
with a soulmate’s touch.

Each month, Long Story Short celebrates the very best talent of young writers.
Each month, Long Story Short celebrates
the very best talent of young writers.

Ripples nuzzle the shore,
like lines of lace folding into themselves.
Frondescence trail whispers behind as
they wander along the surface.

Time is a grandmother here,
weakly insisting there was glory once.
She sighs a lullaby
to her kin.

There are seldom visitors
to sparkle the lover with coin,
but treasure is valueless
when a queen swathes you.

Twilight smiles with tired face
and climbs back into the sky.
Then puckers the lustful lips of darkness
to silence the light.
