This poem is taking a stab at being a visual poem, and I am trying a (new to me) type of rhyme. I hope it works for others as well as it came across as I wrote it.

The hourglass turns

Yet the candle still burns

And the heart quietly yearns

In the body near the fireplace

On a cold and quiet night.

 

The thoughts travel to yesterday

To an adventurous time that slipped away.

Are they of love? I can not say.

For some things should never be said

On a cold and quiet night.

 

The sound of a clock echos in the room

And the rocking-chair creeks an eerie tune

As the firelight dances like the wisp of a broom;

Then memories join in, in yesterdays den

On this cold and quiet night.
