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.

I loved this! I'm actually not all too familiar with the Japanese Tanka so it was a pleasure to read. As for the message, though short it was very meaningful. The speaker seemed to want to reach utter paradise and relished in the tantalizing pull of the universe. What was natural in that very moment was to follow, as if in a haze towards that peace. One could get lost in poetry such as this; Very artistic. Great read.

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!
