Weary stars stand still while glancing,
As their eyelids freeze with frost.
Arms and legs and fates have crossed,
In the moonlight-- shadows dancing.

Carved upon the pale wall
As though ancient hieroglyphics--
Phantoms of the sleepless evenings
In eternity enthralled.

One more step and we will soar,
All is spinning, all is twirling.
Shapes of shadows, spinning, whirling,
In the moonlight, on the floor.

In the twilight’s masquerade,
Hungry eyes light up the night
They declare with silent pride,
“Rather burn than simply fade.”

Master-

You've done the waltz in the moonlight,
a twirl around the garden of shadows.
A lovely acceptance of the challenge.

Oh yes....a real work of art in this Master

 
I don't buy temporary insanity as they murder defense. Because
people kill people. That's and animal instinct. I think breaking
into someone's home and ironing all their clothes is temporary
insanity.

I am hoping that it is alright to reply even though I wasn't invited to the challenge. Romantic, sensual, movement throughout. Delectably original and superb in its presentation.

This has been some challenge, eh?  I haven't read one response to it yet that I haven't enjoyed thoroughly ...

... and this, of course, is no exception.  I'm dizzy from all the twirling and whirling!  Wonderful verse!  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest
