Night

Keeping with this week's theme, I'm posting one of my more evocative poems. It's short, but I love the direction this pulls me.



Sapphire clouds
Hypnotic moon
I am mirrored in brilliant reflection
Helpless as I am to the breathless sky

Sapphire clouds...

That helplessness is indeed enhanced by the limitless sky.

I like the photo too...

The last line really resonates. A short but memorable piece.

It's short, but powerful...and the photo compliments it perfectly!

It's short, but it's not short. It's endless in the way it drags me across the landscape. Bravo, my friend.

Oh, yes, you captured that perfectly! Short is so much more difficult to do than long! ~Linda
