BrewNSpew Cafe – October 8, 2018


 “Friendship, sweet-resting place of the soul, the gloaming wherein our hearts find peace.” ~ Alphonse de Lamartine

Word of the week – gloaming – (noun) – twilight or dusk. Synonyms – blackness, candlelight, darkness, dusk, gloom, shadow.

 brisk winds blustering

forceful cleansing in action

souls running from souls

with nowhere special to go

 with the gloaming came silence

The guidelines are simple-

  3. Eugenia,

    How do you come up with your word chooses? I will let this one stew in my brain for a bit to see if it takes root. Right now nothing is forming but I haven’t had even my first cup of coffee yet. I know how can I get from point a to point b, let along write a masterful poem? insert loud laughs You however, did a hum-digger of a job on it!! 👏

    • Hi, Cathy! I get my words from Mariam-Webster Dictionary Word of the Day and many I’ve never heard of. Sometimes I get on a roll writing poems and sometimes, I draw a blank. Coffee always helps! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the poem.


  4. The silence here feels so eerie.

  5. I was going to squeak Roamin’ in the Gloaming at you, but I see you have been given a professional version. Saves me having to run, pursued by missiles.
