Standing at the Night Window..........

Standing in the cool air of the night looking through
the frosted glass .....I dream
Of places far away ....of some journey yet unknown
my eye's reflecting lunar beams

I dance a slow and meaningful waltz
with isolation .......with self exile
Watching my own breath quickly freeze
and move away and smile

My thoughts seem to explode in the
silence of drifting restless mind
I dont want the dawn to come .......who
knows what the day will find

I turn on the music low and the piano leys
mesh with the moonlight seranade
And as they both feed into my restless mood
I go to another window.......lift the shade

The same darkness awaits me ..... the same
reflections of moonshadows and stardust
In my trance I almost miss the shooting stars
and now I understand.......a restless thrust

I was awakened just for this........the sound of silent
movements......the gift of night skies
I wish upon a wish to catch a ride on the full moon
but only silence.........no replies

Even though by now i have read many brilliant hubs there still comes a time when one will catch my eye and amaze me !! This is one of them and I think when we are feeling emotional we reach deeper and this is when some of our best hubs are published.

You are a talented poet without a doubt and here's to so many more to share.

Take care

In the words of a poet we can ride upon the moon and streak across the sky with a shooting star while piano music sets the pace. I have just returned from trying to catch my frosty breath. Thank you for the gift.

You paint a scenic picture, one that every one has come across at least once in their lives yet not every one can place it as beautifully as you have.

This was utterly lovely.

Most of us miss the silence of the night, the beautiful moon and seeng the stars so bright. You brought it all back for us to see.

By far one of your best pieces. Did I tell you your poetry leaves a tranquility with me that not many words can?

This is soooo beautiful and brought a peaceful feeling. I could see the frosted window pane. I could also hear the silence and feel the sadness of no replies........

Love this one dad! I think we can all again relate to this great write. This I could certainly picture you doing. I too find myself having this same feeling...especially nights that I'm up late having a cold beer and know my ass should be in bed...joking. Seriously beautifully written....love and hugs
