Nocturnal

January 20, 2015

Hunter Moon

‘Nocturnal’ is the next poem in my sanctuary series:

At first I revelled

in the extra space,

rejigged the pattern

of night and day;

 

watched stars track

through the skies,

 

took long dust baths

and afternoon naps,

 

fished for hours

by the land-locked lake,

 

caught my reflection

in the Hunter moon,

 

wished I could call you back,

cu.coo…cu.coo…cu.coo.

  1. Hi Judith! So beautiful verses! I wonder if you want to compose some thoughts for my “visuals”…Please, let me know…

    • Hi Roberto. Thank you for inviting me to compose some thoughts for your visuals. Did you have anything specific in mind or were you thinking I could respond more to posts on your site? Judith

      • Hi Judith, Thank you for your kind reply! I may send you some works so it could be easier for you to create poems or haiku or simple thoughts. I give you my email: ro.alb@alice.it – Thank you!

      • Hi Roberto. Thanks for your e-mail address. Mine is julema@tiscali.co.uk. If you want to send a few examples of your work in the next week or so I will try to respond prior to leaving for New Zealand on 22nd February. I will not be available until April after that. Regards, Judith.
