Moonlight and Roses

Soft metronomic muscle caught
on snag-toothed grin of gristled moon,
faint wishbone whistle, picayune,

long-stemmed laments from thorns are wrought.
Wet roses wilt amid the silt
of sodden land that sorrow bought.

As footings rot on runes rough-hewn,
soft metronomic muscle caught.

  1. Beautiful and melancholic… very fitting of my state of mind lately. It makes me feel less alone. Thanks for sharing your gift.


  2. A sharply crafted lament.. I enjoyed how you take a fresh look at moonlight and roses… this one snags and seduces at the same time. Wonderful sounds throughout.. pulsing away to the metronomic muscle…finely achieved. Those thorns do prick.
