Serpentine

soulreserve:

the stars
sparkle
patterned
constellations
on the skin
of the black
serpentine
night,
as it engulfs
the moon
suffocating it
within
constricting coils,
it buries
the half eaten
remains
somewhere
in the bosom
of the restless
clouds.

I think your serpent and my Black Clouds work well together.

Finally that night
of twisted fate
and dark delight,
a serpent emerged
a black oil slick
carried on its back
frightened pinpricks
torn from stellar homestead.

It embraced lovely Moon
wrapped tight her equator
consumed the pale illume
and left little stars easy prey.

Their nemesis now allayed
the Black Clouds re-awake
scud around scaled skin
picking off tiny stars
left vulnerable
by miasmatic kin.

Her Moonshine now gorged
ending chilsome cries
her glow subsides
and the dim grey husk
is buried in the bosom
of the restless
Black Clouds
only now the night sky
is truly dark.

Wow! Look at that. We had the same thought!!! <3
