Reading by Moonlight


image; monhegans schoolteacher 2004 by jamie Wyeth


dappled moonlight shines
on fluttering words
turned translucent 
with drips and steam
stars on the horizon 
blink knowingly
onto lavender snow
the outsider looking in
the insider looking out
we are shadows
on the pages
deep inside 
we see the truth
of ourselves.

  5. I love these words:

    we are shadows
    on the pages
    deep inside
    we see the truth
    of ourselves.
