awake this night
sorting sorrows
the moon and I


"I place these moments in my pocket
to be pulled
at the rush of noon,
the crush of three...
when tears come,
when words must learn to be enough..." MKL

I know which moment you are talking about here...
And why is it that the moon is always our companion? Very reliable moon!

Melinda, long or short you don't disappoint!

the moon and I
Serenem, this is simple yet holds so much feeling. As Peter stated, the moon always makes for a comforting companion.

peter, reba and the moon

Thank you both for reading this and for your thoughtful words. Yes, the moon often keeps me company and listens well to everything that I say.


You all seem to do, as well...

I'm grateful!

To the music of "Just you and I" a romantic song from the 80's.

title grabbed me
and the verse didn't let go... This poem is exquisite in both it's simplicity and the complex picture that you manage to paint in such an incredibly small space.. I think most haiku writers, myself included should be required to read this... it's pure art...
