Moon Secrets by Colleen Keller Breuning

Moon Secrets

 

The planets rotate and revolve

black holes collapse into dust

stars may come and stars may go

but Luna always returns.

 

From fields of velvet indigo

her alabaster face beckons

she soothes me with moonsong

and I spill my secrets.

 

As the words flow forth

the soul becomes dyed

with the color of its thoughts

and my heart bleeds emotion.

 

Exposed, expunged, extorted

beneath the shuttered moonlight

she breaks her heavy shroud of silence

and laughs at me.

 

The winds rise up at her command

as she flashes her twisted smile

sinking beneath cold mountains

to gossip with the sun.

Poetry of the Heart by Lynn Long


Poetry of the Heart

Vast as the ocean
depths unknown,
is the heart that
loves- beyond 
its own

A treasure to impart
Humble and true
The gift of my heart
In bravery to you

It is the hopeful heart
of the dreamer, still 
waiting for love's true
kiss- who will shine 
a light into the 
darkest abyss

Fall Equinox by Joan McNerney

Fall Equinox

 

Morning light reveals

silhouettes of branches

against a dove grey sky.

 

Hurry, pick gardens of bright

vegetables. Time to cook

big pots of soup, yeasty breads.

 

Wearing red, orange,

yellow leaves, trees

sashaying in the wind.

 

Countless shades of leaves,

shapes of leaves,

sounds of leaves.

 

Children come from school

jumping in piles of foliage

shouting with delight.

 

Flying carpets of sugar maple

leaves unfurl along our road

as frost draws closer.

 

Amazing how many stars

fit inside my windowpane

alongside a harvest moon.

Anansi

Anansi smote Pegasus.

There can be no heroes.

if all cannot fly, then none will fly.

Mystery by Paul Pekin

Mystery

That footprint in the garden
Someone claims she saw a prowler
But when I walked out,
bare footed on the dew
I heard a morning dove
