But the moon would beg to differ.

She was always lost,
Always looking for which way to go.

Wonder how it fares if left alone,
Will it bear on its own merits
Or juxtapose by meddling hands,
Meantime, sun-dries it again,
Wind...

Painting is a placid lake upon which poetry is reflected in silence

while

Poetry is a tumultuous sea that makes painting roar!

In spiralling flight
This browned yellow leaf
A saddened sight

In a canopy of cover
Above the stream

if ever
if i stood
on the ledge
of darkness
aglow in the light
of moonbeams
flickering
like a lost star
beneath clouds
of life's doubt
would you 
step out of shadows
and let yourself
be known

Magical moonbeams
Sparkling like silver
On an inky sea
I watch them dancing
Captivatingly

 
Bright mystic moon
Shining each night
Waxes and wanes
Controlling tides

Silver orb
Shines above
constantly

I love
A clear

Night
