APED #26 – Night Will End

Here’s another APED challenge. This time we were asked to write a poem in no more than 33 words about “Night” and challenged to make it exactly 33 words if we could (excluding the title – someday I may cheat by writing a story as the hugest title ever and just write “The End” under the title). So, here’s my 33 word long “Night” inspired poem. Find writing concisely the trickiest of the APED challenges and also find it hardest to judge the poems I write for them.

Night Will End

Night won’t last forever,
it just seems that way.
Hope will arise anew
some sweet sunny day.

Till then, take this torch,
may it guide you through;
a brighter day waits for you.

    1. Thank you. 🙂 Never certain about my tiny poems. Perhaps over time I’ll get a little more confident with them. My natural urge is to describe each stage of the night and the dew in the morning – and end up with hundreds of words instead. 😉

  1. Writing short is always the hardest. It’s a sign of a talented and disciplined writer. My mentor always said, “Brevity is beautiful. Brevity is beautiful, Grayce.” This is beautiful. And so full of hope.
