My Time~Free Verse

My Time Petr Krachovil
Petr Krachovil

It’s midnight

And very dark

I’m burning the midnight oil

In prayer to Him

My time

My space

Illuminating the inner




My spirit’s


I’m burning the midnight oil

In prayer to Him

I’ll be able

To face tomorrow

If I drown these sorrows

In time, I will heal

Burning the midnight oil

In prayer to Him

Prompt #11 from Jane Dougherty Writes. Jane asks us to write using an old saying from a list that she provided. I chose burning the midnight oil.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
