Reena’s Exploration Challenge #148

The Silhouette On The Shade

By Tessa Dean

Full moon glowing on my shade.

Funny silhouettes it sometimes made.

Was that a phantom I glimpsed in fright?

The moon’s glow disappears, reminding me it was night.

Spirits roam through my house.

Quiet as a church yard mouse.

Back to sleep I must go.

Too many distractions you know.


I am inspired by the following words, and offer the same as a writing prompt for this week.

  1. Silhouette
  2. Shade
  3. Phantom
  4. Spirit

No, you don’t have to use all four. You can use one or more of the given words in your piece – poetry or prose.

As usual, there is no restriction on length or format of the piece. interesting photographs are also welcome. Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.
