summer night

Posted to Poetry




The moon
Ablaze
In the sky
Lighting my way

How I wish it shared the dark
With
Auroras
My first love

Pacing
Foot
After foot
Follows

Broken sidewalks
Opening up into the earth
With patches of shadowed
Grass gracing every point of

Empty space
Fills the vault of heaven
The welkin
Scattered with stars

Ominous lights
Emerge from windows
Telling of
Lost hopes and fear of what’s to come

Happy with my exile
From the world of dreams
When wind blows
It blows hot

Stammer
Stumble
To my doorway
With one last turn

To the moon
The stars
And the dark dancing clouds of nighttime
Adieu
