Nocturne, by Siobhán Mc Laughlin
I am listening to the moon again,
its high octave verse of light.
Playing a tune on my heart,
night a tapestry of blue notes.
I am dreaming in blue again -
midnight, cerulean, teal,
lapis, turquoise, navy -
the ink of joy untold.
I am beginning to believe again
in a future squared true.
Fractured moments reflected whole,
horizon struck gold.
I am listening to my heart again:
acres of blue, beauty to behold.
How far to touch the moon?
A giant leap of truth.
I am dreaming of new again.
Blue moon chance, gold in tow.
Elementally in love again,
and the moon, it knows.
