Moonlight Colour

Moonlight Colour

On this night, there was a girl.
She shuffles along a path of stone.
Along the trail where shadows dance,
moonlight is the only colour.
In the dark, the animals feast.
Poor tiny creatures, cute and warm.

Inside her coat she stays warm.
Out from the trail, there was a girl.
Through the door to an illustrious feast,
she collects a smile from a face of stone.
Happy, surprised by vivid colour,
she moves across the floor to dance.

From her hips, she begins to dance.
Brass overtones keep her warm.
Playing every note with living colour,
they paint a picture of the girl.
She glides across the stage of stone,
enchanting the lucky about to feast.

“Sit and be merry, for now we feast!”
In conversation, patrons dance.
Across the table made of stone,
she meets a boy whose heart is warm.
“May I have your hand?” He asks the girl.
She smiles with cheeks of rose red colour.

Entangling souls of vibrant colour,
eternally share preamble feast.
Mystified he leads the girl,
through satiated crowd, they dance.
Around the pit, the air is warm,
embers crack in a ring of stone.

Destiny watches the rolling stone,
New lovers glow in merigold colour.
Holding each other, staying warm,
until only ashes remain of infernal feast.
Under the moonlight they dance.
“May I see you again?” he asks the girl.

On a path of stone, she leaves the feast.
In moonlight colour, two lovers dance.
Together warm, a boy meets girl.

As I asked you after you replied to my poem: are you a musician, composer?

No, I am not. I used to be a dancer, wanted to become professional, but life got in the way :) So, yes, I make my poetry while listening to music, and sometimes I write lyrics.

Well I wouldn't consider myself to be much of a composer, though I do enjoy writing lyrics in my spare time. I've been playing the drums for 14 years, although these days I much prefer to sing :) Out of curiosity, are you a musician/composer yourself?

What a beautiful poem to enter PoetrySoup with :) It has great imagery, I can see them dance, and afterwards leave together. Welcome here!
