anticipating winds wake

by Maria Massarella


mantled in moonless mist
you conceal your luminescence
adumbrating stars’sparkle
veiling in mystery wind’s repose

solitude seals my lips

immersed in galactic nothingness
my poetry and I shield sound
dormant my pen lies
on pages bereaved of words

yet...inspiration lurks -
there in the beyond where
libertine thoughts as-sail zephyric dreams
as do my lips curve around your name
so does my pen’s memory seek ink’s flow
probes silence
like the intrepid sun’s ray breaking into another dawn
dismisses the fog
introduces
the new day

Very nice lady. But though the sun shines through at the end it still carries a level of sadness to my heart.

ah, you bring effloresence even to melancholy..and this is the epitome of excellent poetry, Maria!

This, Maria, this speaks for me to someone I dearly miss here... dismissing the fog seems an earthquake away still... love abides.

Love the title...anticipation of what the new day will bring. Great capture of the dry season, the calm before the storm? : immersed in galactic nothingness my poetry and I shield sound dormant my pen lies on pages bereaved of words
