01and The Moon And The Stars And The World

Rating: 3.5


long walk at night
the breeze freezes my spirit
the moon warms it up
pulling at my poetic soul
the crickets sing their poems to the night
a million other insects contribute their share
to loosen up the night
for lovers, husbands and wives
while a tide of words too
creeps in all directions in my mental sphere
saturates the poetic bar of the intellect
waiting to be strummed into verses
the rhythm swims along with them
as i write out verse by verse
the moon my friend shares its light
the night wind inspires
lovelorn stars wave all the way
a million light years away
heralding the birth of a song
sparkling, twinkling
guided by intricate orchestration of the night
before gracing the written page
long walk in the night
even the insects with the lamps
start to lend me their lights
between the twinke of the stars
they dance, sing, beat out a dance

John, This is really beautiful. I have not enjoyed reading a poem so much in a long time. This will go into my favorites. It's just so lovely and I had expected to read a haiku. This was such a lovely surprise to my evening. Thank you so much. Kind regards Gypsy It was the title that made me look at it.
