Fay Slimm.






Come, mesh your face in quivering sparkle which tops the dark lake.


Diamonds are free in the ripples tonight.  

East-wise from shore cast your myopic eyes

and watch surface dancing in crystaline style.  


View silky-white glitter of bubble-burst scintillation. 

Watch mirror-magic shed gems on shimmering lake.

If we gaze deeper we will uncover love's orb celebration. 

Come -  see night zephyrs make spherical paleness gyrate.  

Dark's nebular fore-play assures lovers get thoroughly sated.  

When the queen plays on water her rays beam air-scintillation.     

Follow her reasons as she moves access to more Luna sensation.  


So come precious dearling,  let not this moment go by.

Now is the time to go baiting moonlight, just you and I.

    A beautiful way to describe the moon. The light that has shined down on lovers fo so many years . Thank you for sharing.

  • L. B. Mek

    eloquence, decorated
    with such mesmeric, imagery jewels
    yet again beautifully worded, dear Fay

  • Neville

    Not only a brilliant title .. but the whole page seems to glow with a kind of gentle radiance I have come to both admire and respect and which seems to spill from your palm or your pen with remarkable regularity ... x
