Night Light

Night Light

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

I live in God's Fir Tree Forest Garden. All around standing at attention are the Douglas Firs. They are all ready beautiful but when the moon comes out to play...Look out! I know we can all identify.

"

Night Light

 

Sometimes, with the arrival of night, sleep will not come. 

All is anticipation, waiting and watching.


 Like a great and beautiful paper lantern glowing in obsidian night.

 For it, this soul longs and waits. 


I find comfort in gentle glowing presence of warm peace. 


Luna arches through the sweet velvet heavens and leaves her blessed reflection. 

I revel in long stretching luminous projection against my own backyard.

 It is metamorphosis. 


Nothing is left but wonders, to gaze transfixed, wide eyed at beautiful night magic. Where are the angels? Do they wonder at my joy?


 How does it feel to observe a mortal being, in awe? I am in awe every time.

 Over and over, a renewed experience. 

These eyes rejoice!


Late and later, sleepy eyed but still I search and quest.

 Every corner and tree top spire is new glossy covering.

 So like a little child, wanting to stay, not missing a so special treat. ? 


I am so thirsty!  Can I have another drink of moonlight? 

The canopy above releases glow upon glow in refined perfection’s projection.

 Late night streamers unite in silvery silhouette; a black light show!


 Where did the time go, fleeting heart-beats ticking? 

 My inner soul sees through physical vision phenomenon.

 Clockwork moonlight comes and will again.


 Again glory’s night light will hold me in close caress. 

We will meet gazing face to face. 


Bathe me in your moon light. 

This heart will await your glowing signal.


Bright night candle.

I have a poem not yet posted here where I say Sth like drinking and bathing in moonlight for I'm a fervent lunar lover so I found your version ESP entrancing as my senses delve and indulge into your night magic poetry. You muse eloquently my poetic friend, I hope to read from your ink a lifetime. Kudos.
And warm greetings.
You may read my newest, my poetry is lucid though, as English is not my mother tongue, yet there are those who say I write good for an easterner with English as a second language so I go on spurred by that.

dearest Kathy... in the Winter we so often see a dark turquoise sky
like midnight blue... yet turquoise true. We may see Venus the evening Star...
It warms our soul that rests like the Moon sometimes smiling and sometimes full.
Lovely poetry that plays like a Lullaby. So beautifully rendered. Pat

There is something exciting about the big night light in the sky.
Just being alone with your own thoughts running through your mind.
I think it's at that time you really feel part of the earths meaning.

Musing in the moonlight....something we all have done at sometime or other.

While I agree with you that the light of lunar is very majestic, it is the silence of the night that appeals to me more. It aids peace of mind and clarity of thought, away from the hustle and bustle of the daylight hours. In such moments one can truly muse deeply and find answers to the questions they have.

Another descriptive piece of writing; visual and written in your usual tone of wonderment for all things on this Earth. Nice work.

The wonder of the moon and the anticipation thereof are reflected physically and spiritually in your magical observations. So serene are the thoughts that come to your kind. A handful of lunar rays will cause some to dream free . All rich blessings.

All true. You are welcome, Kathy.
Very creative, Kathy, You give us a glowing look at a moon-kissed somnambulation somewhere between wake and sleep when time seems to stand still and the night takes on animation. I love the night, too, when I can let my imagination travel back to kiss a cheek of my childhood girlfriend or revisit the glass and steel canyons of the city that lurches and rumbles to match my own imaginings. You are gifted. Keep 'em coming.
