Midnight Quest of the Lone Spirit

The silence of the darkness inundates me;
its weight is almost unbearable.
From my perch, sheltered amongst the
evergreen gods overlooking the cliffs,
I hear the mountain breathe.

Within this shadowy blackness
I can feel the presence of
creatures unknown, their penetrating
stare, eyes that do not blink.

They wonder why I am here,

alone.

Lady moon is melancholy as she casts
her memories onto the valley below;
she pulls the ocean to and fro,
a lullaby for my heart as
I search for you in the skies.

While I gaze up, the silver river of the
milky way captivates me as
it adorns the horizon.

My soul is consumed with the thought
that those very stars
could reach down and whisk me away
to where you wait,

wherever it is you are.

    Man this was a sizzling verse, and such a sober strong voice. Your scenery came to life with words, but with how you used them also. One of the better ones I’ve read on here, great!

  • Thank you so much, Jim…

    A quote from another great poet;“Rabbie Burns”

    And fare thee weel, my only luve,
    And fare thee weel a while!
    And I will come again, my luve,
    Tho’ it were ten thousand mile!

    I think" your" heart is like a Red Red Rose, creating soft, soft beautiful visuals.
