Mystical Lore of the Moonlight Moth
and post notes and photos about your poem like Susan Ashley.
Mystical amour of moonlight moth's whimsical lure,
her glowing flame in sensual saffron gold attire;
restless tease with every breeze, gilt cavorting contour,
pale green flutterings, her wings stirring his breath afire.
Lilting lightness in beaming brightness, her dark eyes shine,
in the night renewed flight, fragile love on agile wings;
aerial display of desire's ache amaranthine,
hungry heartstrings crave what evening's ebony brings.
His illumination sparks her imagination,
heart’s replete, breathless beats, she basks in his halo-heat;
fascination with chance her hot romance, damnation,
flame’s fickled spurn, wistful wings burned, by love bittersweet.
