Photo Challenge: Poem – La’ Tuine – “Paint The Sky With Love”


Thanks to MindLovesMisery’s Menagerie  for hosting this week’s Photo Challenge.


Paint the Sky
Source: Unknown

Paint the sky, it needs retouching soon.

For many ages, night tries killing moon.

Its her way, so you never feel safe; when —

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Paint the moon herself; light needs less gloom,

Rid the clouds, which shape and form ruin.

Erase them; moon glows softly, romance blends,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Shape the moon, may she wax and wane soon,

Carve out her circle; flee now doom.

Dark clouds fading, artist’s rendering,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


There is a whisper of dawn, orange looms,

But still the night enfolds us in gloom.

Night is long hours, be not so scared; when —

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Such noises I heard, frightening booms,

Lightening crashed, and didn’t end soon,

I waited it out, dreamt of morn’s blooms,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.

    I agree dear Mandi! Repetition works wonder especially when you do it! This is just great!

      Thank you for reading and commenting 🙂 I would never usually do something so lovey-Dovey directly, but it worked well for this poem and as the repeating line.

    Mandi, this is a beautiful and romantic poem. The mention of the moon is always magical, as is your repeat line, “Walking home, paint the sky with love.” Reading your poem reminded me so much of a painting by Maxfield Parrish, called “The Lantern Bearers”. Thank you for sharing a delightful and magical poem. Please enjoy the rest of the week. ~ Mia

        Thank you for taking the time to look it up. I have loved this painting forever, and for some reason always associated the lanterns with moons. So now you see why I love your poem. 🙂

        LOL this comment was meant for the flash fiction… My defense is that I haven’t had my coffee yet and too many tabs on my browser. I have read your poem, it’s lovely.

        Oh and sorry you’re not JR. I got you confused with another blogger, haven’t had my caffeine fix yet either.
