fluid mood mystery

Liquid music
moonlight
floating on the
surface of a
puddle
makes us
calm
a tonic
we drink
or
memories
rippling in and out
of workweek
days in
vacation moments
that settle in
the sun quietly sinking
down the ocean a trillion lives deep

Hypnotized by the magic of the moon's reflection, my mind wanders to greener pastures. Any forth coming publications??

Hi Pat! I'm always glad to hypnotize you a little with a poem. I hope to have more submissions off this week. How about you?

I'll keep you posted. Thanks for asking.

Thanks Aurora! I was paying special attention to the pace and flow of this poem so I'm glad your discerning eye picked up on that. Thanks my sweet, for the wonderful comment.
