As Stones Melt Into Mist

A Poem by An owl on the moon

How I remember fearing darkness...


How I remember fearing darkness

Before you taught me its tranquility

For light blinds us from the soul

And noise distracts us from the spirit

It builds battlements to shroud us

And chains us to the earthen orb

You must know at night in your sleep

Your stone walls melt into mist

And I pass into the shadows of you

Finding one string, one single soul

I explore every space of you, of us

Knowing we are not simply a room

But a vast and free world within

And though it is still dark there

 I know the sun will be coming

To kiss the night sky soon enough

To make her blush in scarlet hues

To carry you into the Forgetting Place

But you will sleep again and dream

As your stone walls melt into mist

Letting me pass, letting me dance

Into the music of your silences once more.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! So many delightful dancing phrases here that paint a love of stillness & darkness & absence of chaos. This is what I love about living in the wilderness & your words work well for describing two lovers together, or a love of something greater than another. However it occurs to the reader, your graceful descriptions conjure up relatable scenes (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

The power of sleep and dreams that open up your psyche to all possibilities told so romantically. Indeed darkness is a warm cloak we may choose to slip around our weary shoulders to relieve us of the burden of light. Well told.

Oh this I absolutely Love. The Spirituality. The mere exposure into that place of our Being~ KNOWING~within US lies depths, layers, the Energy of our existence is far bigger than the vessels we live in. You depicted this so beautifully. What a pleasure to read your Presence my dear friend.

Yes, so true, dear poet. Thank you. At night I journey across the sea...
Yes, for then without any distractions, or preconceptions, we are more able to perceive!
