As dusk wanes into Moonless night,
When the chaos of the day has ended,
I peer into the placid lake
Blackened by the midnight sky,
To see the peaceful shadows beneath the surface
Spinning in a spiral, and beckoning me to join them.
I wonder what mysteries yet unfold
Will appear to me, and I hesitate,
Fearing what lies beyond the vastness of the deep -
But slowly, my fear is eased by
A smoky arm reaching out to my hand,
Its own outstretched with spider-like fingers
Gently enticing me to their parallel universe,
And willingly, I reach forward and grasp.
Author's Notes: This is also one of my earlier works, and yes, a non-traditional sonnet form. I thought of a black mirror as something out in Nature, and went from there. I did try to keep the meter constantly flowing :) . There is also a touch of sibilance as well as distinctive imagery.
Well, I hope you enjoyed it! Blessed be times Three! /l\
