Heart too full of the dark
This post was created as part of the Poetry Friday challenge, hosted each week by a different poet. Today’s host, Jone Rush MacCulloch, used a couple of lines from one of my favourite Edgar Allan Poe works as inspiration. Please enjoy her lovely poems on her blog and visit the other Poetry Friday participants via the thumbnails at the end of the post.
You have created strong images here. Heart too full of the dark is a hard reality. Sending you love.
Enjoyed this, Karen. I like the contrasts of purring/thinking of biting, and too much dark/dawn.
Evocative poem, Karen. “Blue mug of London fog” 🙂
I understand “hearts too full of the dark/ This dawn.” Your poem is so evocative! Thanks for sharing.
Karen, my favorite line is “heart too full of the dark.” Beautiful! Wishing you a very happy holiday!
Love the thought in your poem, Karen, that quiet early, early time, a favorite of mine! Happy Holidays to you!
Wonderful poem… hoping some light slips into your heart. Best wishes…
Lovely poem–heart too full of the dark is a great description for the shortest days and the mood of our times.
You could have written this poem for me and my morning tea, and our cat, who purrs while he “contemplates biting.”
Nice to meet you, Karen! Like others, I think you capture the blue fog of a heart stopped by too much dark.
