BY THE MOON

By the light

Of the moon

I sit

Captured in

The moment

Enchanting melodies

Softly echo

Around thy being

As the fire

Dances

Behind the glass

Casting shadows

Flickering about

The night

Is still

As the moon

Glows with delight

For it was dusk

Passing by

A barren tree

Surrounded by bleak

Snow

Perched high

Ever so still

I saw him

The elusive twilighter

Who awakens me

From slumber

When he is near

With his simple

Mysterious call

For it is

By the light

Of the moon

Captured in

The moment

Of lore

Of reflection

When I saw

The elusive twilighter

Never before seen

With thine eyes

And when he

Comes calling

Outside my window

Once again

I shall remember

Him well

MOONGLOW

Cold

Dark

Along solitary winding

Roads

Mind dancing in reverie

Passing by the Birchwoods

So still

Mysterious

Lights flickering

Amongst the trees

Stark and chilly

The pond

Frozen in time

Illuminated wonder

From the moon’s glow

Awakening the mind

From its reverie

For a moment

To unwind

WINTER’S DANCE

Nestled by the crackling fire

Of warmth and delight

Winter’s dance

Began

Pure white flakes

Descended

Covering all

In its blanket of white

Sparkling crystals

Within the light

Visions of red

Peak through

The dusting

Upon the holly bush

The wind blows

The trees sway

The snow falls

Covering all

In its blanket of white

Gazing out

Through the window

Nestled by the crackling fire

The sweet spot

Of comfort and warmth

Winter’s dance

Dazzles!

WAITING UPON….

Waiting upon

The rose

That visited

So long ago

On a moonlit night

As the candle flickered

Within the awakening spring

The rose

That filled

Thy heart with joyful

Serenades

Touching and warming

Thy being

Waiting upon

The rose

That came so long ago

Echoing still

Silently comforting

Silently embracing

Silently loving

Waiting upon

The rose

That has yet

To come

To be foretold

WEST WIND’S DANCE

Upon a rooftop porch

On a moonlit eve

The west wind blows

Trees bend and sway

In unison

Leaves gently glide

Resting upon the grass

Sitting wrapped in

A blanket

Watching

Listening,

Embracing

And swaying

She too

Becomes a part

Of  the west wind’s dance

Change is near….

MOON OVER WATER

Passing by

The Birch woods

On a dark winding road

The moon

Over the water

Shimmering

Like silver

Illuminating

Its tranquility

Its beauty

Within the stillness

Echoing sounds

Of nature

Lights flickering

Like candles

From within the trees

Moon

Over the water

Shimmering like

Silver

Illuminating

The tranquility

Within thy being

Like a harmonious tune

A NEW CLOAK

Memories of the Birches

The birches

Becoming

Stillness

The lovely arrays

Of pristine white

Flowers resting

Ever so gently

Upon the mirror of blue

Have gone away

The song birds

No longer resound

The red-winged blackbirds

Have gone away

The Great Blue Heron

Known as “Mr. Heron”

Has gone away

The snowy egret

Is no longer resting

Within the birches

The verdant trees

Are transforming

Into rich warm

Earthy hues

Within the birches

The coming of

A new cloak

Reflections

Of days past

And new wonders

To behold

Within the coming

Of a new day

A new dawn
