Cry Of Selene

Cry Of Selene

A Poem by Doodley
"

Endymion's Muse.

"
Silken cosmic lips

Whisper ad infinitum

Seducing Luring

Charioting me away

To where tranquility reigns.

It of course has been quite some time since I've put an eye upon this site, but nonetheless, your inspiration was always kept in mind and it always derives back to here. While I still must say "By the River, Acheron" is a personal favorite, you've inspired me in numerous ways. I admire your work as always, and I hope to see you continue - I truly adore the lengthy poetry you express, and even the shortest speck of word have such fruitful meaning when they originate from you. Amazing, you are!

Muses come in many varieties. My Muse is a bit of a bully!!! But Endymian's Muse seems to have a much sweeter approach. I loved this Tanka.

Tanka? Unfamiliar to me. I don’t have a scholarly background.

However, these minimal lines pack a huge storm of beauty.
