Poetry: Untitled - Full moon shadowed behind clouds

April 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Full moon shadowed behind clouds 
The pale yellow dream threads 
like the light of my illumination.
Sputtering candle flame;
close, and warm, and fragile, and finite, 
like my heart. 
Distant cold reflective moon, reflecting light but no heat;
so sublime, so unreachable, so infinite.
My own body rests in the snow on the ground 
very cold, very silent, very still, very empty
with the full moon ship sailing on behind clouds.
