I Sing The Night Alive

Alone, I hold the shimmer of you
Between fingers splayed,
As they play the music of your name.

Alone, the moon washes away
The burden of distance
Within the numinous glow of the star-saturated night.

Trees, ripe with pendulous branches
Sway to the hum of temptation
And brush the waiting earth
With tremulous forethought.

And, so clothed in cloak of leaf and bark,
I turn to you
And sing the night alive.

  7. Beautiful words...

    'Alone, the moon washes away
    The burden of distance
    Within the numinous glow of the star-saturated night.'

    I end up being there ... as I love the moon light and the night that it brightens.. thanks for bringing me those memories...

  8. "Numinous" and "splayed" are such tasty mouthfuls.

  9. Really nice peace, I love it when songs contain intellectual wording. Great job here, each stanza works in unison and can stand alone as well. Really enjoyed, thanks
