#frapalymo – Lost to the Night

Night is like a silent sea
Lapping its waves across an azure sky
Fading to black in dark purple hues

Twinkling stars like ships
Shooting their way toward the horizon
A destination unknown

Whispered prayers float along
Soft breezes steadily blowing
Leagues of hope hang heavy in the air

Loving arms envelope warm bodies
As droopy eyes flutter closed
Lost to the night, a silent sea


#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog The Bee writes. Today’s prompt was “night is like a silent sea” from the poem “The Night Flower” by Joseph Von Eichendorff.
