Devoted Daughter of the Moon

    Always asking question 
The devoted daughter of the moon 
     revels in starlight 
  Sweet to the touch, the taste
She dances around an eternal campfire
    The night wears on 
    Still she dances!
She will dance this way until dawn 
when the bright rays of the sun 
    will send her looking for shelter
One million dawnsa and one million
    dreams later 
She'll awaken 
to cast her glow 
upon our epoch 
which is in sore need 
   of tinsel and starlight

    A beauty, Matthew! You've many poems to comment on, I will do so every so often.:) This damsel is surely one of The Choir of Angels. I think that glow and enlightment is something we are in dire need of!! Best wishes...Mikki :)

    This is overwhelmingly beautiful, Matthew. I keep rereading it, and I can't shake off the awe I'm feeling. Captivating imagery...a fave for me! Best wishes, Mikki
