Winter (1/10/15)

Crow Moon, by Felicia via flickr.comFelicia via

A little cup of moonlight, mine,

While sharing tea in the snow

With creatures less than real.

Pretending to belong, I ponder the

First and last star I see, waiting for the

Proper word to settle in on the hills.

They pay little mind to my greeting,

Walk their way, floating with no

Imprints on the ground, as I overture again and again.

I love them, desire their company,

Wish for their abiding friendship,

Crave the warmth of smiling eyes

Still closed to earthling, me.

Laced with the icing of winter

Their strange mien captures

All there is of mystery.

— Char Duguid, Amissville
