Bones Rattle

Pallor bones rattle the night
Chanting their melodies as to put the soul to rest.

Taken from Darkness crawls… that I wrote on 3/8/17

April 28th Prompt: Go through your own poems and look for one line or two lines that could stand alone as very short poems, like this from Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem “Spring”:
Nothing is so beautiful as spring
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush.


Ancient Dry Bones

Dry bones rattle witin
Trying to speak out
No one there to hear
Their long story from days of old
They lie deep in ground
Forgot through ages past
Present noise above drowns them out
Clink loudly they try,
No one hears their rattle,
Anicent dry bones from ages past
