Tonight I Look Up [repost]

Trees moon stars

I painted my dreams–
They reached to the moon,
Yearning and stretching
In violet and blue.

They got caught on the trees,
Shredded and torn,
Scattered like mist,
All gone by the morn.

Tonight I look up
Through pitiless dark
And find my old dreams
Glittered with stars.

Second Draft [repost]

sunset moon tree

The moon is golden full;
My heart is empty null.
All that wasted space–
Unrecycled.
Yet I know I did the right thing;
The moon man nods so slightly.
He saw it all unravel:
He watched lust turn to gravel.
The stars wink in agreement.
Planets are unanimous–
There is no one left to ask.
God said I should leave him;
Satan handed me a cleaver.
The angels fluttered nervous–
No worries it was mercy,
No blood no wounds
To horrify the moon.
Stay golden–
I revel in your fullness.
I grab a slice of light
And I am ready for the rewrite.

I Dreamt I Was the Moon [repost]

Pegasus moon

I dreamt I was the moon, distant and translucent, and you were my divine horse, my Pegasus.

You sailed over the pink pearl seas, steady as a heartbeat. Lavender dawn unfolded as you flew on, silken wings playing the rhythm of our love song.

You never left me crying in the mortal night, not when I was the moon, surrounded by eternal skies and tended to by stars. You forgot to bring lightning to the gods; that’s how enraptured you were.

Your devotion drifted through me like a cloud, its angelic mist the softest shroud, no use to me now.

Peculiar Moon [repost]

Peculiar Moon

I can’t say what possessed me
To wander that wild windy night;
The moon glowed most peculiarly.

Fog rolled in green as the sea,
As I was drawn to unearthly light.
I can’t say what possessed me.

Shadows danced ’round a bent tree,
And I was magnetized by the sight;
The moon glowed most peculiarly.

Then I joined them impulsively,
Cavorting while the stars shone bright;
I can’t say what possessed me.

We made merry naked and free;
My soul soared high as a kite.
The moon glowed most peculiarly.

At dawn I returned from the frenzy,
Emotions once again locked tight.
I can’t say what possessed me;
The moon glowed most peculiarly.
