pregnant moon #poetry

you come up from dark waters

creeping blue flowers drape my body

their scents like heavy chains

pull you toward me.

 

the moon gets pregnant with desires

your hands get lost into my hair

my body now a rope of sand

tolling the waves like a church bell.

*

No one can stifle the sound of the waves.

  1. I have repeatedly expressed my admiration for the imagery and sensitivity of this poetry. Every time, however, I have no words of mastery to combine seemingly mutually exclusive images and feelings! “tolling the waves like a church bell” Only you can do it dear G. Reverence!

     
    1. Thank you so much! I can do a line or do, but I cannot write poems as you can. Thank you again for your generous comment!

       
      1. Thanks for the good words. But I do not make comparisons. You are an extremely sensitive and erudite author and let me admire your poetry! With great respect!

         
      1. Thank you for being so gracious! Usually you re-blog. However, I managed to destroy my re blog button (ha!) and there is no way I can get it back unless I restore the entire site. If I do that I will lose all content. So, here is what you can do. You can copy the content of the post and place the post link after or before. Something like this:

        Pregnant moon, by short prose

        you come up from dark waters

        creeping blue flowers drape my body

        their scents like heavy chains

        pull you toward me.

        the moon gets pregnant with desires

        your hands get lost into my hair

        my body now a rope of sand

        tolling the waves like a church bell.

        or you can reblog from your reader if you follow me. There are other ways too, but I think that will do it. Anyway, I am very grateful that you want to do this. Very grateful.
