Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces

Night
a weeping willow of water wails
a worried wind stumbles into
a lonely acacia dovening in the desert
a compassionate river runs recklessly
over brooding banks and stagnant stones
startled stars quiver and shiver nervously
leaves and branches slowly vanish
birds mellifluously whisper a dirge
as blackness quells the evanescent embers of
a dying day
Night lowers himself onto the earth.

Molecules of Moments is a poetry in pieces.  Night begets Dawn. Dawn begets Day. Day dies diligently as she falls into Dusk. Twilight diminishes her lingering light into mystical molecules of obsidian Night.

Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Dawn / The darkness moans dismally / as its velvet black is unwoven by / saffron fingers / unraveling a new day. / Silence evaporates as the morning star invades the sky / a frigid lake shatters into shards of silver / mountains a…
The Eagle
Perched high / On ragged crags of / Wordless thought / He waits A crystalline lake of Loneliness / Lays supine below / Insatiable hunger burns / Within Masterful talons / Thrust deep inter her waters / Grasping the seasoned voic…
