Film Noir, Take 38

Graveyard journey.
Ghosts whisper, dance,
twist, shimmer.
Breeze skips through leaves.
Clouds balloon, curl,
storm drizzles, bubbles open.
Lightning sparks, sounds echo.

Dawn spills, melts rose-red.
Peppered blood-shadows
scar green spring grass.
Fearful giggle jars grin,
breath flickers.
Cue still lull.
Dream sequence fades.


A second quadrille (see below for explanation) Missing You also posted today, uses only today’s prompt word “dream.”  Hope you’ll click on the title and read it also!

    I have absolutely no idea how you can possibly do this and make it work so well. Masterful.

    I don’t know how you made it all fit, but it makes good sense

    “Dawn spills, melts rose-red.
    Peppered blood-shadows
    scar green spring grass.”…….This takes my breath away!!
