Red moons


What light! SS1

Petal-smooth and languid,

Red moon swims

in a sea of lake mist.




Above black rocks SS2

a red moon rose

with a thousand rain whispers.

Light and shadow play

on a purple sea,

still water singing

as blue winds blow.



A symphony soarsSS3

as I sleep,

my dreaming blood

runs like music

playing on water.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
