At home with
the serape of night
aching sorrow
soul-soothing light
raven hours 
rouse my inner
celestial flowers
to paint the sky
with gold moondust
& cosmic rosebuds
Dimming the pain
with a silky glaze
warm milky ways
fill these hollows
From this
midnight pallet
I am reborn
as vibrant as
the sun
in the morn'

      A fine write Santita. I'm at home with aching sorrow day and night. Well, not really, as I hardly ever see KP. She's always busy being in the newspapers or on telly. lol.

        Thanks, Orchi!

                The night, the majestic night, displaying her vastness lands upon our humility as a humbling measure.

                What matter our human worries and tribulation? We are but a speck of creation in this wonderverse.

                Celestial flowers duly blossom and yay Santita is refreshed stepping through a halo of rebirth, fully equipped to face all that comes her way.

                • Santita

                  I always look forward to your thoughts on a piece - 'halo of rebirth' might you be a poet, sir? We must appreciate the vastness of it all, me thinks. :) Thank you, dear.

                • PoeticBiscuit

                  Every time you post I brave myself for a wild trip into some beautiful my written poetry. Job well done Santita.

                      • James Michael

                        Very well written and uplifting. Iโ€™m more in the mood for some Unsub though.

                        • Santita

                          yeah, I am too. Hope he pops-up with some stirring words soon.

                        • sylviasearcher

                          Is it just me or is there something oh so very sensual about this? It felt so soothing beneath the wonder of the world. I felt relinquishment, acceptance, anticipation, release and glory. You are an amazing poet.

                          • Santita

                            I love that you could sense some sensual undertones in this! Your words always bring me comfort at times I need them most. Thanks for being a spark of warmth on my page

                            YOU are an amazing poet

                            • sylviasearcher

                              Oh I think you are so much more amazing. You could publish a book of poetry. They are wonderful ๐Ÿ˜Š

                              Like from a caterpillar to a butterfly

                              • Santita

                                Thank you so much!

                              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                                Muchos Gracias SANTITA por esta Poema ! Es muy elegante ! In Structure - Sensuousness & Substance ! We have chosen it as a favourite - because when we are apart (11,500 miles) we cannot cuddle our BLUES away - BUT - as you describe - la Noche y Nuestra Hermana Luna - calms our Nerves - lifts our Spirits & sooths our Heartaches ! Amamos esta Poema !

                                Muchos Abrazos y Besos por Tu
                                Tus Hermanos ANGELA y BRIAN
                                ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿงก
