210th Weekly Poetry Contest honorable mention: The Long Road

by Ryan Stone

I drink all day
and then strike out
along that winding road,
where shadows flit
by leafy bough
and twilight waits
for no-one.

Failing light
births fickle fiends
who writhe and tempt
the absent mind.
In deepen wood
where mildew clings,
night’s cool breath
gives parting kiss

to seasons
long since flown.
