Carnival… #Poetry

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie

Sunday Writing Prompt – 16th August – Carnival


With painted faces hidden
Feasting can begin
Chase the winter darkness
Joy calling summer returning
Christians, pagans, celebrating as one
Music grinding hips
Snake their way through the streets
Days of celebration
Coloured beads festoon the crowds
Happy smiling people
Do you recognise the face beneath the paint?
Are you kissing a stranger?
Or a long-forgotten friend
Beneath the hidden shining mask?
