Poetry Challenge: Dreaming Trees

This week’s poetry challenge on Jane Dougherty’s blog includes the painting below and five prompt words: moonlight, tread, wary, secret, swaying. She has also challenged us to write using the the kyrielle form (which you can learn more about here). It took me three days to write this poem, but I finally managed to come up with something that used all the prompt words. I enjoyed writing a kyrielle and hope to write more in the future. Thank you, Jane, for putting together another lovely challenge!

I’ll Follow

A darkened path few dare to tread
A destination which I dread
Where moonlight will not cast its glow
I’ll follow anywhere you go
Swaying branches unsettle leaves
Dark spirits hide behind the trees
I hear their mournful cries of woe
I’ll follow anywhere you go
My wary steps increase their pace
Erratic heartbeat joins the race
Anxiety begins to grow
I’ll follow anywhere you go
And here along the forest path
Your secret love shall face my wrath
Tonight, my dear, you both shall know
I’ll follow anywhere you go.
