La Somnambule (Sleep-Walker), by Marc Chagall

silent appeal
draws me into the night
heedless in my vivid blindness


My second response to Jane Dougherty’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #39: Sleep walking, with La Somnambule (Sleep-Walker) painted by Marc Chagall, is a cinquain.
Cinquain ~ a five line poem formatted with:
                  ~ a syllable count of 2-4-6-8-2, or
                  ~ a word count of 1-2-3-4-1
                      with the second & third lines as descriptors,
                      the fourth line an emotion and
                      the fifth line a synonym or reflection of the first line
