The Moth


Nocturnal
flapping powdery wings
flying beneath
the midnight

Alone
counting stars
after running out of sheep
The metamorphosis
of thoughts
into dreams

Here
socializing
with I
in this conversation
I get reacquainted
with my soul

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
