Crescent Moon

January 14, 2013

our mourning doves flew with love on the wing
far out of sight where only hearts ever see
the newborn sun illumine eyes magnificent
still I listened even after winds fell silent
your crescent moon dancing the dawn of a dream
mine a song of winter borne out of spring

    beautiful , George!
    *your crescent moon dancing the dawn of a dream
    mine a song of winter borne out of spring*

    I love these lines!
    groetjes, Francina

      Thanks, Francina!
      The metric and rhyme both lead to the center but that vortex is only the key to unlocking these last lines (along with the visual crescent). The interplay between them dances again and again for me.

      Delighted that you liked it!
      Cheers, George

    Beautiful poetry, beautiful soul… On a more mundane note, I’m glad to see you know what mourning doves are, and how to spell their beautiful name. I love them here in Florida and yes, one does hear them in the morning.

      Thanks! Florida is one of my favorite places. I’m partial, of course, since I was born there!
