Sara Tehrani

Rookie (1987)

The moon

Looming in this space the clouds wrap around its beauty

So tranquil washing into its thrilling musk of mystery

I gaze and gaze, for a moment I’m taken away

It glows, exquisiteness it shows

So close to the eye yet a Trillion miles away

My vision invites a tranquil moment

As I stand there in the dark

Staring...just starring...

Stood staring at the moon

    I love your descriptiveness in this poem. It really gives me an impression that I'm stood there, it's like your words can be touched :) The first 2 lines are great! 'Musk of mystery' - I like that.
    The moon is a thing of beauty, and so is this poem :) x (Report) Reply
