Moonlight Sonata

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

“And I sing a moonlight song wishing the stars would right all wrongs”

 

Break away from the mist

Steal the heavens and clasp their light in your fist

One evening song plays

Along the streets quietly toward us it strays

Revere the one composer

Playing on and on down the hall

Until our bleakest reality becomes a blur

And we reach out, wanting more

Into our hearts this song it plays

Until our moon returns to us, out of the mist

Descending past the lightning’s blaze

To dwell in this lake of music, to exist

Among us

In our eyes, as we listen with our minds

And hold to our very wildest imaginations

Conjuring images from our innermost sensations

Like a black magic that has the mind possessed

And in fear of the harmony

 That stirs the stars into a dark tempest

And amidst this chaos, only the moon can rest

And as Anela's lips move in sequence to the lightning blaze settling into the ocean waves, I see her for the first time; A Romantic in love with words. Way to go girl, your a romantic. Yes?

My favorite of yours. I have of late been quite enraptured with Moon shadow. When the moon is full and so bright that it casts shadows against the night. This poem takes me there.

Thank you, and I am really happy it made you feel that. I was trying to capture some of that midnight elegance and rapture of a clear, starry night, and pale moon, casting those shadows about itself... "R"

This is a really beautiful poem. It conjures up so many romantic images. 'The Busker and The Lovers walking, hand in hand on a warm summers evening'
