I’m Going On No Moon

April 18, 2012

I’m going on no moon.  And no one

Made me any offers. Tell Tale signs stay silent.

It’s gonna  simply empty out,

This night, right to its residue./

It’s gonna  spill out again as fountains do.

But wishing wells replenish

W/shiny pennies;

Pitched prayers cheap,

But bright as church bought candles.

.

Night wants a way with you./

It  stews, but

I do see hidden handles./

You gotta know when to get out,

You go inside and light lanterns./

You gotta know which trail to see clear

To see clearer

Nocturnal patterns.

.

.

(lit lanterns surely must lure  lost angels

it matters to turn first to conference then

all our eyes on the one sunrise)

.

.

.

one of the stranger poems from a coupla years back, strangel still

    Very beautiful, and strangely nostalgic. Thumbs up. 🙂

    I love reading night time reflections. There is a fun story called ‘Night’ by Guy de Montpassant that you might like. My sister read it to me this morning. Thanks for checking out my blog!
