Moon song …

My heart is filled with longing –

I send the ocean to the shore.

Do you wait there for me?

I’ll light your way.

When clouds obscure my face

my song is carried

on a phantom breeze ..

Be still …

Did you hear me

stir the silver leaves

of ghostly aspen trees?

My love for you

is carried

on each returning tide-

My soul is filled with yearning

night and day.

It will never cease-

sunset or sunrise.

The spirit of my spirit

dances in the moonbeams

upon the sequinned sea.

Do you see me in your dreams?

Did you hear my sighs

in wraiths of wavelets moonlit?

    Your poetry is a mirror to your soul and if I may be so presumptuous, I think I relate to how your heart sings. You are quite an inspiration.

    I don’t think you could ever be presumptuous, Shermeen … ‘an inspiration’ ? Perhaps the beautiful moon must take a bow 🙂

    Thank you for your encouragement and your kind thoughts.
