Solitaire

I am sister to Scheherazade.

I tell stories with silent lips

to an invisible king

in a castle of cards

on dimly lit winter evenings.

 

I wonder to whom I speak.

Midnight suitor, to whom do I sing?

To a king of hearts 

or to a king of spades?

 

There is more to tell with fingertips

so the deck won’t fall.

I hold my breath

 and wait for the verdict.

 

Can I win another night of peaceful sleep?

For my life, quiet one,

please applaud
