moon and sky

reaching up tortured arms,

midst evenings thickened air

touching sky, holding breath

a heavy cross to bear,

holding onto sleepless hope

that there is more to hold

in place where sight bears every gift

and silence isnt gold.

hanging onto nighttimes thread

morning yet to come

where darkened sails reach their ports

and holds beneath its thumb,

knowledge that time brings change

and altering of ways

where navy skies shroud the dreams

of all the brightest days,

sighing deep with heaving breath

for all ive learned to see

and look once more with shadowed hope

as moonlight shines on me.

  6. Beautiful use of the language, very musical, I thought. Weird, I know, but it evokes Mozart for me. My story is here:

    Others have said it well, but I’ll repeat it here. Wonderful. A beautiful take on the prompt and brave, for verse is hard and somehow makes the writer more vulnerable. Well done.

  10. You caught the way I felt about the trees when I first saw this picture but I was particularly taken the by the echoing of hope, sleepless, then shadowed, but still there.
