The Moth

The Moth

The Moth

"
Everyday would appear to me,
As Eagles see, in panoramic bird's eye views
Or nocturnal's fly on the wall
The Moth
Unsettling
Misleading, misdirecting, and disconnected,
Revealed
Everything
Apparently avoiding anything that didn't appeal
As difficult as that would be.
I discussed heartache
And resolution with a young man in search of guidance,
A guilt ridden conscious
Alert,
Yet further concerned we aren't doing enough
Vague precision
Butterfly outspoken
Or a quiet Moth
An Aura
A distant light source
The Amber ridden sun
My son could prosper from callus ridden hands
Countering
Soft to fingertip
Harmony melodic echoes
Angel wisps
Persistence and wings of turbine scale
Put forth in motion
Momentum
And moments of imperative clarity
Torn between righteous and sanity
Evidently propellers paralleling patience and grace,
Harboring souls that would peer from the Heavens
And a Saffron and Chinese Orange Moth
That preached Buddhism and peace
And a breeze flaunting freedom
Amongst tree's meditating leaves
Buddhist nature
I'd hope you'd ask for guidance in times of need and lost
The moss on North's side of trees would only carry us thus far
Lantern
Or a moth cluttered light post
Dim against
Shade and dense
Light through a phase in time
Eclipse,
Of mind state
Or a pendulum polar day
Amongst an equator that's half awake
And sleep and city light in a cleverly patterned patchwork scheme
Sown
Filtered
What would reach you in trickling morse code
Cold and fractured
Stalactite
Speak on what matters
Avoid blending
Moth's camouflage
Our tank armor.

Such a glorious flow of language, emotional, far-sighed, spiritual, colourful and oh, so much more. Your writing exceeds most because it sees between spaces, you adopt yet never take away completely' you feel and share.

That moth, for me, represents all Life, certainly how it can be seen in the right light. Perhaps too, it is the Word. Perhaps.

My intake on your verse here...is as if the Moth is unwavering...in the structure of your words also give that unbalance theme of what is coming at you from the aspect of the meaning(s) being put forth in the lines...you take with you the understanding the pattern of life is not easily a straight line...but a wavering one...that is seen here within the words...yet you give the reader an engaging thought of speculative understanding...Glen Yumang Manese

I was left wondering what meaning was behind much of the phraseology here. It seems like a psychological enigma at times pondering its own meaning. Navigation by transverse orientation sometimes ends in confusion for the moth as well so perhaps that is appropriate. A bit of fluttering puzzle trying to find the light? At any rate, it was an interesting and entertaining read.

In hopes to shed light, thank you for dropping by my friend.
Well, that certainly was a wonderful roller coast ride of linguistic adventure. I think the biggest compliment I can pay, is that I now look at the humble moth, the goth butterfly, in quite the same light again.
Oh, and I totally agree with tracey's comment :)
