Night-Shift Forest

Night-Shift Forest: An Aubade*

Sun’s smiles
glinting in between
our tinted window pane,
slowly erase
traces of last night’s
forest of hand and teeth-
oh, what a shame!

Today’s prompt is The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1) by Carrie Ryan.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)


The Alba or Aubade is:

  • a love poem, most often mourning the parting of lovers while extolling the coming day.
  • constructed at the discretion of the poet, length, stanzaic form, meter and or rhyme. although often a smattering of rhyme is present without any particular rhyme scheme.
  • dramatic since it is often dialogue between the parting lovers or coming from a cuckold husband or a watchman’ warning. Sometimes dialogue is silent, expressed in images.

  1. Reblogged this on Pens and Erasers and commented:
    This is one of the reasons why I absolutely love that I transitioned over from Blogger to WordPress. The WordPress community is absolutely amazing and filled with talented writers who are willing to give each other feedback and encourage one another. Rosema’s poem is definitely a beautiful example. Go give it a read! :]
