As I continue on my journey to show appreciation to fellow writers, bloggers, acquaintances, and friends, on day 5 of my “December Daydreams” collection, I find inspiration from Basilike Pappa’s site name, “Silent Hour”. Basilike is an exceptional writer and one of my favorite sites to visit. I highly encourage you to visit Basilike’s site!

December Daydreams 05 – “Silent Hours”
Most nights I chase moonlight’s last tiny, bitter, blue breath,
mired in metaphors, writing until she becomes a grey ghost.
There is a sincere, brutal, truth, only found in the silent hours,
as daylight dawns, I run until my legs can carry me no more.
Each night I return, climbing the ladder of darkness to escape,
drifting in a sea of words, I break – break – break, nevermore.
