and calm
inside me.
Midnight’s glory
recharges patience for day’s chaos.

This is my entry for Mind Love Misery’s Prompt 36 – Virtues. I decided to combine with a New To Me Poetry entry: the Tetractys.

A Tetractys consists of five lines that break down like so:

Line 1 – 1 syllable (no “a” “and” “the” or “boring” one syllable words)

Line 2 – 2 syllables

Line 3 – 3 syllables

Line 4 – 4 syllables

Line 5 – 10 syllables

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!
