The West Moon (poem)


Recommended Posts

Another new poem of mine from the many I've been writing daily now. This one is about escaping the troubles of the world.

The West Moon

(Written May 16, 2005

Run by the west moon-

past the shadowed mountains

and falling laughing upon the gaining ground.

Catch the night rain and

bathe the black grasses

until they flow to the floods of the sea.

Forget not the Gypsy- yet dig

the hole deep, and defend yourself

from the coming night with laughter.

Your hair will grow long- and

the wind shall wipe your eyes.

Go deep, but run lightly by

the west moon.
