3 Poems by Lynn Long

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

Midnight Rain

Silver diamonds

Mere reflections upon the sill

Thunder resounds

Yet, the world lies still


Raindrops falling from an ashen sky

And I want to be the silver diamonds

One with night

Illuminating an ebony sea

Luminescent ...and free

Farewell Summer

Finding ground in the sticky

heat of summer

I hear the thud, its sound familiar

As ripened mangoes in shades

of mahogany, fall one after another

Loosened from the aging branches

of a once youthful tree no longer able

to hold on

And I think ...perhaps

They are free


Sunlight flickers

Yellow and gold

In the shadows

of memory

Her forgotten soul


Adrift upon gossamer wings

She now dances with butterflies

On the Autumn breeze

Sometimes her world

Exists only in the twilight

of dreams
