Leave your summering senses

Leave your summering senses

A Poem by An owl on the moon

Watch the world open your eyes to endless wonder...























Leave your summering senses,

wander the shimmering heights.

Here in the sheltered silence,

take unnatural, winged flight.


Birth comes to all by nature,

but walking must be learned.

So holding on to the future,

climb a sacred staircase spurned.


The waning day in a golden hue

has passed us by, and spoken little.

My eyes did not see a dozen blessings,

the holy hush in life’s frailing brittle.


When will the dust be sanctified?

And when will death be defeated?

The summer is silenced and I am

only a hollow echo, calm retreated.


A wind’s muted strain is movement,

it truly has no blue ambient voice.

In chords of soft shifting silence,

its rhythm is a  breathless choice.


Mundane gives birth to the mysterious;

it plays across earth’s landscaped dune.

How we rest beside the sea in  wonder,

waiting for the stars to lace the moon…

I especially like the last stanza...The mysterious and wonder if we just look for it..Each minute of each day has something to offer that is new and fresh if we just open our eyes, noses, ears..Sunflower

Seems that for you this existence is not enough to see the beauty of life, I could be mistaken but the meaning of it lies on the true owner of this masterpiece.

This is truly genius, the choice of words reverberates through my senses.
That your perspective is magnificently different.

Wonderful images…
I really love to read your poem….
But when I begin to write review….

Because the feelings your words evoke in me….are very special….

What a calming, beautiful poem this is, Craig .. I'm left with a feeling of 'waiting for the stars to lace the moon… '

You have the supreme skill of turning simple words into a wonderful work of art and leave a message behind at the finish.

2023 is here... May we make it so much more heaven than hell... Wishing all peace on earth... The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies Wi.. more..
