O fickle moon!
caretaker of souls 
who chase their dreams 
across the heavens you

waver now, and waste away
in quiet desperation;
night surrenders to the light 
and reveries fade.

O passionless pale face!
barely transparent, 
bloodless as a dying rose
in throes of dissolution.

    Something new - a stark image of the moon. I agree. There are two sides to most any vision. Congrats on the selection. daver

    Powerful imageries ... an embryonic myth or character with fledgling wings... a delicious write. Bravo
