Beyond the glass...

Beyond the glass...

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

I will believe, come what may...

"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How dark the rain that stained the glass like blood,

Each drop crawling in a slow, steady stream.

An endless river, a torrential cursing flood,

Washing all joyous life away, it would seem.

 

Somehow beyond the glass my eyes perceived

A world in living movement and color now.

How my heart truly ached to believe,

What this painted canvass might allow.

 

Now my fingers cling to the cold, clear pane;

Out there is a wondrous world to pass.

My eyes, my darkened eyes remain,

May they ever behold what is beyond the glass...

"How dark the rain that stained the glass like blood,
Each drop crawling in a slow, steady stream.
An endless river, a torrential cursing flood,
Washing all joyous life away, it would seem."

I loved the imagery in this stanza. Very thoughtful. It really makes you wonder... The sense of longing is so vivid in this. Excellent work.

what an interesting thought-- rain dripping down a window like blood. I think you may have just ignited inspiration in me there... The last two lines are my favorite. This poems got it all, starts with a dark mood and ends with hope. It's great. Keep up the good work
