accustomed (let us sing)

I found a new prompt that interested me over at the ReinventionsReena blog

A piece of writing of any length, ending in the phrase: we grow accustomed to darkness. My attempt is below.

~~~~~

I whistle
the sun

whistle
for new light
rising

hum
within my breath

hold on
to hope

I make a sound
call it
song

raise my voice
to heaven

so
sing with me
now
is the time

to sing songs
of light
and of reason
lest
in the night we grow
akin
to the darkness

sing

sing out now

lest in the night
all hope
is lost
and we grow (too) accustomed
to darkness

  1. The process of writing a song comes through so clearly. Music makes all the difference between a poem and song, and can lend a new dimension. We choose our music, and that is what creates different personalities. I think I’m arriving at answers to the questions raised by Jade’s post.

    You emphasize the importance of light, by highlighting the transience, and the inevitability of darkness.

    Thanks for joining in, Frank Prem!
