A Poem by An owl on the moon

Wanting... waiting to see you...




through the sky

on a flight,

long and restless.


waiting to see you.

Step… step… step

moving down

that long thin corridor.

Glance out

into the wall

of humanity.

Hearing laughter,

endless conversations,

clatter and noice.

Looking out across

the faces


I see

your eyes.

What enchantment!

Your lips curl up;

sweet smile,

like eternal summer.

I run to you,

pull you up

in my arms.

Your legs

wrap around me

and I breathe in

the scent of apples

and peppermint.

A soft, long,

lingering kiss.

A moment;

Oh a moment

I never wanted to end.

And in that crowded,

noisy airport,

there was only

you and me…

Oh I love this one. It is like an experience I had with a dear friend of mine who came to visit me for a week. Great images in this one. It really reminds me of the raw joy and this poem depicts the happiness I remember of an event like this not so long ago. Beautiful piece, just like every other work you do. Good job!

What a beautiful reflection on such a tender moment. I really liked the structure of the poem. Those short lines really re-enforced the idea of a journey, especially in the lines "moving down/ that long thin corridor".

I also enjoyed how this poem morphed from that journey in the airplane to something "like eternal summer." That moment where everything vanished from sight and just the two of you were in that terminal seems so timeless and lasting. Very nicely done!

Oh beautiful....the rapture of searching for someone in a crowd and finding beyond description and yet You've captured it...we are surrounded by a sea of sound and bodies yet we are alone, You and I, we are alone together...lovely, lovely, lovely sentiments..

... .... ..... .... !! i'm inarticulate. Thought it's extremely breathtaking forbid me from submitting my review because i will never find the perfect words to say. NEVER.
Your poems are not only ardent, pure and heartfelt but also cogent. Your description is perfect and anyone would read this would sincerely sink in your imagination (your inspiration) and feel it

Perfectly, beautifully written, Craig!
I love moments where I try to find someone in a crowd, and there could be a million people and all I want to see is a certain set of eyes.
Brilliant =) -Eli

To meet a loved one after a long time is like the first drop of rain after hot summer, love is a feeling which has no definition or meaning which could be explained rather a beautiful feeling which could only be felt, and this poem expresses such longing and loving feeling in words... Thanks for entering the contest!
