Vintage Words


Once, against a blanket of dark eyed gazing

stars. A quarter moon was the only light

to welcome night sojourns. Silence spilled

across the darkness to whatever light dared

to perform.


The cresent moon of a fading month makes

me walk to the balcony and gaze alone to feel 

a dream standing beside me, tasting with me 

the cold air and the darkness..


You become a moonless night without stars

when clouds are thick spread across blackness.

I sing the song of light for you, old friend,

and weep a little, missing our up turned profiles.

Another moon and stars poem. ~A~

Oh how this whispers my ear

Oh how this whispers my ear so well.

Such elegant design you have crafted of a nights marination.

I feel as though I am transported to this place, thumbing pages of sky beside you.


"...I walk to the balcony and gaze

and feel dreams walking beside me

taste the cold air and the darkness

Around me."  - this stanza is moving in a plethora of manners for me.

I am in love with this all dear artist.

Thank you for blessing the world with it.

"The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible; but all natural objects make a kindred impression, when the mind is open to their influence." R.W.E.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
