A Brilliant Sheaf of Moonlight

My tender breast obscured by darkness inking into my soul,
an unfamiliar emotion overwhelming

This is not the me I’ve come to know, but someone different,
who lives within me, but not forever

So I am explaining a few things

When light filters in from the window, it captures my breath with its beauty
the simplicity of shadows, intriguing in this room where I spend my time

And as it fades from light to darkness,
soft colors dance and play on the falling ceiling
as I lie on the floor expecting to see a miracle

I know this time spent in the outer depths of sanity
is the gamboge panacea for my heart and for my soul,
nourishing my body with beryl prisms of sacred light

I become still while the room grows dark, and shadows disappear
As a brilliant sheaf of moonlight pierces my breast, I am healed

  2. Visions of healing are most important! Let the light cancel the darkness… I love how you are working through your circumstance as your poem unwinds. Well done Linda.
