1731

original image from public domain, filters added


were something like this
to grow in my garden
it would
hold my attention
for hours on end

for hours on end
undecided about stars
dark side of the moon

dark side of the moon
a breeze stirs shadows in hope
of tomorrow

tomorrow pierced by sun rays
entering bird songs clear as
the gurgling of a brook
where lads pitch pebbles

of each potato planted -
dark of the moon

One Night

one night I searched for a star
what I found was a full moon
now my every day is
full of shooting stars

her shadow on the white wall
her nude silhouette arouses me
I smell her fragile perfume
Honeysuckle blooms

this was such a wonderful and rich piece - such deep evocation of images called to mind - loved the image and the words - and how it all flowed so very well, inspired!
