Cave In

Wrote this poem for a challenge on the Poet Sanctuary. The challenge required that the poem was 5 lines in length, had a colour (which was to appear in the poem), a homonym, a heteronym, a simile, and a rhyme scheme of a-a-a-a-a.

I stood at the caves entrance, afraid
Violet shadows hurry like a bat on parade.
Sunlight endeavours to refuse the shade,
Dare I enter? My mighty bat swayed,
A refuse tree branch. I am a charade.
