A Poem by An owl on the moon

A life in technicolor...



Time screams
New life born
Pink blush
The color of spring

Time laughs

Two grow into one

Dressed in white

The shade of summer

Time smiles

Shared existence

Soft sultry tones

The flush of autumn

Time remembers

Reflecting life

Gray grace

The tint of winter

Time now weeps

As fingers let go

All the colors

Fade to sacred black..

"Time now weeps
As fingers let go
All the colors
Fade to sacred black"
(My world this past year)

This is so well written. Although it doesn't rhyme, I'm glad it doesn't for it makes more of story or more real and after all "time" is like a story that we create. It's so simple but so beautiful. I like the stanza where you explain fall, that one was my favorite.

With my eyes closed...I can feel this ...!
Yes I have learned in my short life that time has many voices..whispers, colors, shapes, images, etc. No one can stop the time.
It is a reflection in what has happen before will happen again and again..and it wont stop.. love it

I really like this one for so many reasons. I like how you have presented this piece. The way you have the font growing and then fading away again. It brings movement to the text and energy to your words. Then there is the context itself. Another exceptional job!

An interesting passage of the world through time.

This is such a beautiful piece. I'm not very old yet, but I envision those final times as bleak ... I hope they won't be, though.

I love your contrast in the beginning to the end. It's really well written.

There is no end to your brilliance! I absolutely loved how each season represented a phase in life, how the colors start out vibrantly and fade with time. The reader can see life play out before their eyes! I'd quote my favorite lines, but I really loved all of it. There's a reason you're one of the top writers here... every piece is so imaginative! Amazing work as usual, I'd expect nothing less :]

An owl on the moon

2024 is here... May we make it so much more heaven than hell... Wishing all peace on earth... Together, maybe we go the distance... The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet t.. more..
