Sea of Tranquility

                                                                                                                                     Like fingers, lovely birch tree shadows play
On virgin snow like hands upon a sheet;
So bright the moon it seems like light of day,
But stars among the forest’s members peek.

And while my Love lies pleasantly at rest,
I dream awake and contemplate my muse;
Enraptured by this scene on winter’s breast
Where thoughts are drawn and peacefully diffused.

So now I look upon the face of time
And all my years of life become but one.
In timelessness I feel my spirits climb,
Where thoughts of love and life can laugh and run.

Now I am left at peace and free to be,
There lost within the moon’s tranquility…

    Craig, I choose a poem like this one any day over those three "top" poems you showed at your blog with their ridiculous couplet form. A fave for this one.

    It is sometimes hard for me to get iambic pentameter to seem interesting, because the rhythm can seem redundant, but this one I did not notice that problem at all. Finely crafted words mixed with trancendant thoughts. This one is sure to go far.

    Fantastic moonlit winter night. Cheers!
