From One to the Next

lunation s

Like a murmuring moon,
my lunation turns and repeats,
always unfinished.

As indistinct as air–
unbroken darkness veiled
in expanding light.

Before and after become lost–
the shifting rhymes
remain untamed.

The edge waxes and wanes.
The colors blend and unrainbow–
silent, dazzled, unforeseen.

lunation close up s

A quadrille for dVerse (murmur), which also includes this week’s words from the Secret Keeper.  It was also inspired by Frank Tassone’s hazy moon challenge, although I’m not sure these verses meet any real criteria for haiku.

    Colors blend and “unrainbow”–I love that. It’s like time unbending somehow.

    I prefer this version. I agree with you that the second version has an awkwardness about it, voyeuristic almost. There’s a reason you wrote it like this originally, because you didn’t want to analyse the intimacy of the thoughts behind it, even at one stage removed in third person. One of the things I find so infuriating about so much contemporary poetry—it’s all me me me, the deep thoughts that finally don’t really interest anyone but the writer.
