Night Sounds


There must be white farms beyond the edge
of the blue fields by the moon
at night you hear along distant roads
horse hooves
you hear everything then silent delusion
water is suddenly oozing from distant moon fountains
— you suddenly hear water
oozing in the night —
the horses drink hurriedly
and whinny
then they are heard trotting towards the stable again

    Portrayal of a serene status of a mental peace. Need to view it in one's own context and it will be felt in the heart. I enjoyed reading the poem. (Report) Reply

    Nice description... still nature at night! I can imagine it as a painting in my head. Quietness, peace.
    Good writing and thank you for sharing.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
