Awaken, dreamer

Awaken, dreamer

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

From "An Owl on the Moon"

"




















What fills your heart with fright?

Is it brilliant day or darking night?

 

The howling sun consumes

the paling sparkle of the moon

 

With step on step you find

the tortured banter of your mind

 

Now clouds your shifting sky

Awaken, dreamer, it’s time to die...

Now this must be read aloud; or certainly in a whisper by Karloff or Price. And there must be dry ice.
This is dark but seeming light. Exactly how the subject is. I love the way you have melded format, subject and message in this multi layered piece.

C Froman,
Such a complex layering of meaning within our inner selves. Humanity is always growing or stagnating. This was an interesting focus on being caught up in a place of shadow. Then to find it's opposite side is the final hope. Bless you much Kathy

Appreciate your words so much, Kathy!
There are no shadows at night, save those cast by the illumination of guttered street lamps; but there are dark corners where our greatest fears ever dwell, which were my thoughts as I read these lines.

Yes, so true. Thank you Beccy. And how there are dark places within that hide from the light.

Than you and appreciate the views of Beccy. It matches with my view.
Loved the poem, sounded like a familiar music. Reality may shed some rays of light somewhat undesirable for a dreamer. Only when the moon and sun come to terms will the moon sparkle more and the sun sing . Like the shifting sky, I like to beliebe pain is mutable. Hope you're well C Froman.
Lots of love

Thank you, dear poet. It was written for my book, and it did ache of ancient things.
A very well written poem. What fills your heart indeed...the interplay of light and dark weaves a tone that plays at the back of the mind like midnight blues. Good write

Thank you so much for your insights, Ted. Appreciate you stopping to read.
We re all afraid of something and we must eventually face them to truly feel alive. Love that last stanza.
