From the Pocket of a Dream


While the moonlight seduced the lake
with its rays of silver in a midsummer night
and our hands, in a search for solace,
found one another, we knew.

Our steps, already determined,
took a walk across the illusion for the last time.
The silence talked loudly to our hearts,
caressing our tired souls.
The lake whispered behind our merged shadows,
taking away all doubts about the path we were on.

In our midsummer night,
the moon over our town was full and smiled.
He kept on illuminating our way
while he himself slowly fell in love with the lake.

    The moon and the silver light
    how can I reach them in a daylight?
    The stars and the planets
    can we have them in our hands?

    Lovely poem …

    the poem paints a lovely picture cast from the light
    of the evenings’ moon.

    I fell in love with the last line.

    “He kept on illuminating our way
    while he himself slowly fell in love with the lake.”

    Just stunning!

    Very lovely and eloquent! Though I would suggest to change the word ‘illuminating’ to something else, in the last stanza. Just a trivial thought, the poem is awesome!
