In quiet spaces

Sweet moon whispering

In quiet spaces

Places where solitude is embraced

As the heart of a dreamer moves

Seeking the life

The energy of solace.

Sitting in white rooms of yesterday,

Jars long empty filled with dried bits

Of a season long gone,

Sitting in lucid thought

Remembering dreams that fell like worn petals

To the floor.

She spoke to the sky,

Whispered hopes and fears

And watched, waiting for answers to come forth

And she slipped from hiding

The wolf moon gazing back

As the poet turned knowing

The answer had already been gleaned

From midnights darkest stories,

From heart songs that sang

As she drifted away.

I have not seen the moon in I do not know how long, yet in the darkness early this morning, she gifted me with her beauty, moving me from grey depths into the surface of another morning of life. The image called me to write about a quiet space where poets dream and create.

  3. I needed it desperately….I lose sight of it when all goes well, yet when needed, it surfaces like a beautiful sun in the morning, or a moon pre dawn. Yes, nothing like it. Peace and love and moon worshipping quiet….K

  6. It was a place that I needed desperately to find, I saw the pic, which had nothing to do with the moon, yet sent me directly into,the quiet place I was seeking……I was thankful for that….it’s funny, but when there is a crushing need, something always is sent to light the way to,what we seek…the magic and mystery of life. Peace and love, K💜
