Moonlight in the Dark

creature of darkness
when the shadow
finally leaves your side
don’t cry alone
let the silence keep you company
let the water be your witness
let the wind carry your anguish
out into the infinite night
the stars will catch it
and guide it to the moon
tell the moon your secret
for it knows no boundaries
it knows no ending
it knows only possibilities
let the moon carry your sorrow
behind that yellow glow
lays many dying hopes
lost souls
whenever you miss sorrow
stare far into the distance
amidst the veil of darkness
find that faceless glow


Fresh as Morning Dew

on some nights
when the icy wind hits town
the cold can be so unbearable
but those water drop eyes
seeing her flaunting her smile
a fusion of shyness, playful
and innocence
my world halts
tugs my heart
warm under the blanket
of loneliness
pushes me up eventually
from my long slumber
of waiting for the spring sun
when i can finally walk again
among flowers and birds
when i can submit myself
to feel a warm hand on my face
when the sound of the leaves
blowing in the wind
whispers a song of hope
but until then
i settle with this smile
a powerful gift indeed
from a little lady in red
unaware of her charm
fresh as morning dew

a forest, silent
ghosts fading back into trees

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

she opens her eyes
to a blinding white blanket,
the wind’s soft purring

The Autumn Beauty Poem

About a week ago I wrote a short essay about Autumn, followed by the poem below. I separated the poem here for the purpose of submitting it to the Thursday Poet Rally entry this week. Please take the picture here to take you to the Poets Rally blog to see more poems from other poets.

If you would like to see my complete essay, please click the link here: Autumn Beauty

what a wonderful name you have
what a gentle nature
what a peaceful feeling you bring,
lucky are those
who have been swept away by your wind
because they’re forever changed,
doomed are those
who have been touched by your color
because they’ll forever ache for your beauty,
you’re always beautiful to me
and i will always adore you
even with your flaws,
you are a wonder on this Earth
an awe to us
and we are humble to have you
