Treasure Island

Dustin Bennefield

(Semptember 11,1991 / GA)

Blue Moon


Blossoming from the rock
A soul of a desperate lock
Becomes one with the blue moon

Hues of blue and gray
A due of death today
A blue moon rises in the west

It seemed so long ago
When the moon was so-so
And never went to the side of the blue

Now life is happening
And flowers are dying
The moon so blue is in the middle of the night sky

A love is a death
With a beginning and end
Just like the blue moon

With the beginning of a new day
The moon is hidden
And a new life is born
Unlike the moon of blue

    They way you wrote it is so interesting and it had a unique flow to it and I love how you gave the moon interersting characteristics. Two thumps up.

    What a great poem, a sparse landscape, bleak and unforgiving, I love the rhyming pattern, how original. Ignore that De Faoite, he's one of those so and sos who thinks free verse is the be-all and end all which it isn't. Go ahead with your style, because I like it. (Report) Reply
