"Moonlight spills down vacant ..." Quote of Michael Burch

Thursday, October 14, 2021

Moonlight spills down vacant sills, illuminates an empty bed. Dreams lie in crates. One hand creates wan silver circles, left unread by its companion—unmoved now by anything that lies ahead. I watch the minutes test the limits of ornamental movement here, where once another hand would hover. Each circuit—incomplete. So dear, so precious, so precise, the touch of hands that wait, yet ask so much. ('Night Watch' by Michael R. Burch)
