erase the moon
shed darkness ‘pon this rotting flesh
erase the moon
send vulture’s wings; take leave — ’cause soon
this famished soul will turn to ash
and still this heart – too bold, too rash
erase the moon

embrace the moon
shed light upon this sullen soul
embrace the moon
come, listen to her silver tune
to cleanse this heart of dust and coal —
your wounded spirit shall be whole
embrace the moon

… two Rondelets – written for dVerse’s ‘Form for All‘-Prompt… thank you so much for the introduction, Tony… this was a real brain teaser – such fun!

  1. I love the contrast of the first versus the second ~ Erase the moon (darkness) versus embrace the moon (cleansing/being whole ~ Excellent work on the form ~


  2. ..oh, Miriam this is so good… i really like the notion that your rodelets are like a debate between an anti & pro / antagonist & protagonist / believer & not / loathsome & respectful… ah, a perfect duality of divided self… loved it… smiles…
