Again




In these silent waves, drenched 
in the unworldly glow of midnight

(the dust and grime of the streets, settled
the stately avenue trees resting
even the cicadas have no complaint)

Awake, a delirious me, awash
in a sea of unresolved nothingness

Breathe me a whisper again
breathe me into life

Again.

Sting, and Stevie Wonder. Two musical geniuses. In "Fragile," one of the most popular numbers of  Sting. 

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are ....

  1. I love that song. "How fragile we are". I love your poem: "breathe me into life again...."

  2. Lovely poem.
    Did you take the full moon photo?

    Stevie Wonder and Sting are two of my favorites and that was a beautiful rendition of "Fragile".
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes I did take that photo Rita ... but then, it was entirely hand hold since I do not have a tripod ... there's a moon on bourbon street tonight!
