This wildness of winter waiting

This wildness of winter waiting

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

I remember summer’s sorcery

"


















I remember summer’s sorcery

Melodious fields of fire

When yesterday was a seed

Tendrils weaving, wrapping through me

Wildness in the roots dancing

In the ancient reflections of you

This mirage of magic

On candlelit garments of gold

As the oil and incense were burning

Continual prayers to heaven

And clouded gates led to

Those gardens of delight

Meadows of desire

Where you placed a seal on my heart

The mark of your name

In the sacred chambers of my soul

You lifted the veil

The mask of me

And gave me a cup to drink

Taking me to a silver slumber in shadows

But the waves came by night

And carried me far from your eyes

I woke in this nightmare called Distance

Saw that vessels crossing the sea leave no trail

For you to follow home to me

I live now in winter

This wildness of winter waiting

Immersed in snow

I live in winter

And yet I live

For seasons are not stone

They are alive in me

With all the echoes of you.

Amazing and beautiful words shared my friend.
"You lifted the veil

I loved the above lines. We rarely lift the veil to show real face. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

C Froman,
"this wildness of winter waiting" I love your intricate thougt connections! Yes we do all touch one another with our lives. The deep relationships are the most satisfying and most scary at times. Your story was a true thermostat of temperature brought about by relationship. Love it for sure. Thank you for allowing me a weak effort at understanding. Blessings in your life and wonderful writing. Kathy

There is so much to love about this poem...so many lines I'd like to point out that spoke to me.
It's beautiful, as is all your work, but this piece also has an ancient feel to it...as if the reader has just stepped back to an ancient time of sorcery, maidens, knights, and mystery. Perhaps, of all the lines I enjoyed, this one spoke the loudest:
And yet I live/For seasons are not stone/They are alive in me/With all the echoes of you.

They are alive in me...with all the echoes of you....wow. That is incredibly beautiful.
Loved this!

"But the waves came by night
And carried me far from your eyes
I woke in this nightmare called Distance
Saw that vessels crossing the sea leave no trail
For you to follow home to me"

this part was painful to read, as I have recently experienced the tragedy of distance that ruined my relationship. Beautiful words :)
