Towers and Turrets


dance on a yellow moon
with your shawl of mirage
reflecting the effervesence
in a ardent, gentel blur
of ecstacy

Towers and turrets
shiver on a white moon
with its pallor casting
a frightening lightness
that cast shadows
on your stagnant feet

Towers and turrets
stay for the blue moon
that will come arid and misty;
remain looming over
shadows and spires,
and their sad musings
