Silvery silhouettes shine from the moon On this hallowed night amidst urban glow. Moments like this always fading so soon When east meets west and our energies flow. Watching the stars touch the blackness behind, We discover the universe above, As its light penetrates deep in our minds, So do our hearts open up to its love. The mysteries of the heavens we see. The purity of the light from the sky, The universe shines for you and me With peace and quiet love for you and I. In my west starlight shines down on the earth While in your east sunlight starts a rebirth.

So I see this one that used to be number one of your "faved poems" (by soup members) is now in second place. Anyway, I still would put it top place. The other poem is first because you "dropped names" haha!! What's happened with White Wolf?

Oh how nice this is. I just discovered your NUMBER one poem on Soup and it's with White Wolf. It has the definitive flavor of love for nature. Reminds me of that song about two lovers wishing on the same star though on different sides of the world. (wish I could remember the name for things!!)

Hi Andrea! Yes, I know the song you're talking about but I can't remember the name of it either but I always loved that song. So glad you liked this poem. It is always such a pleasure to write with THE Wolf. ;D Carole

Carole and White Wolf, A masterpiece collaborative effort here with your sonnet here. Marvelously well-conceived and fabulously well-articulated. The tone, tenor, and tempo of your stanzas and ending couplet are uniformly excellent. I really like your sonnet here!! SEVEN/FAVE IN MY BOOK!! Cheers and Best, Gary
