an old one re-worked;-)

Come, steal away!
and let us dance
in the shadows;
And our feet shall make no sound
nor leave any trace
on the white-frost-ground.

Only the frozen rainbows
of breath contained in spirals
or blended beating of hearts
may betray our rendezvous...
the weaving of wonder,
and the chasing away
of dread.

I am enlivened, aroused
in the moonlight.
Maybe explains the lack of sun
in this soul of mine.
I am lunar.
All watchful.

in unison with nature.
for the celestial synergies
of twin flames re-united.

Will you take the lead?
Or shall I?

I saw a video of a full circle rainbow- beautiful.

This is a beautifully uplifting poem. I'm definitely a day person. Early morning. But a moonlit night with frost in nature is not to be laughed at.

I liked this.

Hi Pia,
What a beautiful pic, thanks for sharing!
I am also (or used to be) a lark.... up with the sun.
I do also have a deep affinity with moonlit nights though and also crispy frosted nights and mornings.
As a child I would always ask my mum if I could stay up really late if it was a full moon and the wonder and the magic never left me.

As always Alison your beautiful words leave me transfixed with admiration. You have such ability to harness the emotion and transfer it into a perfection of lines, for me the emotion is there but I cannot quite capture them on paper the way you do. Sue xx

Thanks for saying Sue, but I think you play yourself down, as I have seen a major breakthrough in your confidence and work lately. We all start off tentative and gradually find our feet. It takes guts at times to write from heart and soul as it can leave us feeling exposed and vulnerable...but once you get past the 'what the hell' boundary, where you stop worrying how you come across, there is great liberation.
I still feel anxiety and lack of confidence but as the saying goes..."feel the fear and do it anyway!'

Ah....back to the Stormwolf I first found on UKA. It was your wonderful words that inspired me to continue when I first arrived Alison.
