THERE IS WILDNESS IN ME

THERE IS WILDNESS IN ME

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

I was born under the glintering of a gray Cheshire moon...

"


























I was born under the glintering of a gray Cheshire moon

On a January day, with bright echoes of the blue June

And in the lace of a meadow’s sweet saffron skirt

You would find me in untamed wilding dreams to flirt

No chains could hold my restless sun-stained skin

Ancient mariner in antique rhymes had raged within

I devoured bolts of light that dance on howls of thunder

In the fiercing fires of stars with sapphired rich plunder

Found Aladdin’s lamp in Seurat’s surreal brass painted feast

Riding into Xanadu with Kubla Khan’s power unleashed

Now listening to skies’ scarlet serenade being set free

I beat my primal chest, for there is wildness in me…

Beautiful!
The dreamer...the explorer...the grabber of adventures penned so we can fly with them, and through them. My favorite line in this is rich in imagery and flavor: 'And in the lace of a meadow’s sweet saffron skirt'

Yet the poem as a whole speaks to every heart that has ever felt that restlessness within...it touches all of us who: 'beat my primal chest, for there is wildness in me…'

Perfect!

So thankful to have you by, Kathy! Thank you for your lifting thoughts. :)
I really like how you threw in Aladdin's lamp, I see it kind of as a metaphor, I also love the description of the moon. I just loved how you beat your primal chest to set free some wildness in you. Awesome poetry here.

I love the title & theme of this poem, which is nicely fleshed out with many interesting examples. Great rhyme, rhythm, alliteration, & assonance thru-out. I think "glintering" is a made-up word, but it's a well-done creation. Very superb use of word sounds & meanings.
