I dreamed a black; an onyx lake
before the sun’s first dawning rays
its surface marble smooth and makes
no sound without the warmth of day

I saw myself; a ghost it seemed
stripped naked on the grassy floor
beneath the waning moon’s cold beams
just staring at the other shore

From far away a whip-poor-will
called lonely, just a sleepy song
it tickled in the morning chill
and broke the water’s pull – so strong

to slip into that silent space
where never lived a false love’s face

    Perfect meter and good rhyme for this form. I loved the word choices and imagery and what a turn in the final couplet! Cheers, Roy

    Your first group is devastating, a very fine description of lost love - like being dead. I doubt the whip-poor-will could melt the freeze. Anywho. I love your poem. Congrats on the selection. daver
