55-The Stars Seem Shy...

No whisper descends
from the groaning sky,
No scowl wrinkles
the tiring pool,
No true love succeeds
without struggling to follow the general rule.
The stars seem shy
When leaning down to hear babies cry.
The town hall leers
its torn shelves,
The cars try
to lose weight
By sending homes
of those absent-minded elves.


Write a story a poem that is fiction in 55 words. Give it a try and notify G-man
I used web tool to count my writing which is exactly 55 words… WORDCALCULATOR

The stars so far away to see
They just pop out when they want to be
They hide when the clouds are in the way
Disappear when the sun comes for the day
So look real close the next time you go out
You might see them peeking without a doubt

enjoy as well Jingle(+)

Nice, Jingle. I like the stars leaning down to hear babies cry. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting earlier. I appreciate it. Feeling a little blue but don't know why. My 55 will be up in about five!

Nice 55... "those absent-minded elves"... :) - I liked that.
I like the images you build here, the groaning sky, the tiring pool, and the shy stars...
Peace and love/ Jo.

The way you animated each aspect of nature with humanisms added so much depth to this, and loved this line: 'No true love succeeds
without struggling to follow the general rule.'
