alight in the dark

the dark side
of the sun
sunny side up
i begin searching
in the soul

with light
from the moon
caressing deep
dark space
twinkling stars 
shining

winking i look
upon the moons 
face smiling
silver shadows
dancing

fluttering light 
in the trees
hiding 
seek and you will find
as night speaks
i whisper 
softly

without a voice
not lost
dreaming something beautiful
a lonely wolf
upon a mountain top
coming out
of the shadows

howling into night
one with his shadow
lighting up
bright in 
the dark
in the moon face

    A lonely wolf howling and on the other side a soft whisper..reflects so much of who we are..At times sad..at times happy..At times lonely..Other times fulfilled..I love the profound message which dwells within each verse Liam.Excellent!

    Wolves are very mysterious and elusive creatures. Yet, we have heard them howling from the woods behind our house nearly every night!...Beautiful and vivid imagery in this poem! Loved it!
