Poem – “Shiver with the Weight of the Moon” – Romanticism – 3/8/2021

Lift your shape,
Breathe thy sorrows
To represent the moon’s discolor
Of white, fleeting veins
That once possessed the shame
Of life’s great surge
Through watery channels.

As roses come to meet you,
While faces come to greet you,
You are the kindling
Blazing with the truest grace,
Capturing reflections in puddles,
Washing bare skin
In the deep oceans.

Life-like sadness
With breath to each fall
Of your aching breast,
Capture the decoration of the forest
With leaves, falling with the winter
Blankets, atop your shores
Where skin comes to warm you.
