A Poem by Lydia


artwork by stefan beutler





the sky speaks to me in whispers tonight

as if there is an urgent message i must hear

the stars cast a spotlight on once darkened shadows

illuminating footprints of those now gone

the moon is an amulet for me to wear

and the scent of promise is still in the air

but no one seems to notice anymore

the fractured fates played a cruel joke on me

such a double-edged sword

yes, i hear the moon's message

i would not have known what to yearn for

if i had never known you

The message of the moon spoken in whispers midst the depth of night inspires one to acknowledge that which is important in life, to remember those who have left their mark on our souls, to yearn yet for those who have stirred the very essence of our being! I feel this in your words, and the remarkable image you have chosen. I could get lost in her thoughts, her desires, her wanting to be in another place!
