One Night Soon

One night soon I will follow the moon’s path

across the wide channel and over the islands

threaded like rosary beads

to the magician cap mountains

where white ice gleams in lunar glow.

I will find the place where ravens are born

always dark and always light

a kingdom of wind sound and silver tipped forest.

The yellow path across the water will take me there

and one night soon I will go.

    The moonlight across the water. Very nice piece Don.

  3. This poem feels like my life. It speaks to the dark places in my heart. Not a negative dark, just a different color. I felt at home when I read it.
    Thank you, Don.

    Hail the deconstructionist in all of us, who sees what they need to. I was drawn in by the pace of the reading: So calm, and centered. I envy being there.
