Altered images

Silence dark and  all embracing

Gentle moonlight bathes me

My heart slows finally  from racing

My  ears aware of  the  song of  the sea.


I look up to see  the  moon as it looks down on  me

My  soul is  filled with light  and peace

The moon floats in  ripples on  the  sea

I feel calmed  and  rested I have  found release.


Altered images who knows  which is  real

Is  the  solid  moon a reflection of  the rippling  one

Am I trapped  or am I free what is it I feel

I close  my  eyes all is  silent  all is  gone.

    I really like the way you did that image, Willow.

    This is lovely–and it rhymes! I appreciate nonrhyming structures, too, but there’s something wonderfully evocative about traditional poetry. I’m always waiting to see how the poet will pull it off.

    And you did it beautifully in this one. 🙂
