Even Now

This poem was published in “A Pocketful of Sequins” , produced by Moonstone Media to raise fund for The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Breast Cancer Network Australia and The National Breast Cancer Centre.

Even the moon wanes

Even the sun sets

Stars ceased to glow

Long ago

Tides recede and

Mountains slide into seas

Blossoms that scent the night

Shroud the earth by dawn

And the heat of fierce embrace

Fades in the glare of day

Yet birds go berserk every morning

Breaking their breasts with song

As mourning mists drift away

And the sun rises

Again and again

And again

    This poem was so beautiful that it really moved me and made me sad because it has some sadness, but still is overwhelming, have a nice day, dear Mary, kind regards from the very cold Hamburg, Mitza

    Reblogged this on Life is But This 命 and commented:

    This is my first post on this blog. Five people ‘liked’ it so I was encouraged to keep blogging. Two years later I am feeling the futility of it all and finding it difficult to lift a digit to strike the keyboard. In lieu of posting, I have decided to offer this to new readers. My apologies to the handful of followers who’s read every post on my blog.
