Wrestling with Stars

By Tagen

so encloaked,
so enshrouded,
a mist covers the moon.

and I laugh,
​remembering a riddled tune.

afar, atop
​misted pines
​and darker dredges,
I cry
​and cry
​over her wretched tomb,

​it's hedges
​feathering me, too.

so I fly,
​and wolves cry,

to my own eternal doom.

    I really love the first stanza as it whispers so softly to me. I have always found mist to be so peaceful, and coupling it with the inherent beauty of the Moon, it's just priceless. I'm really enjoying your work, and I'll definitely be reading more. Great job, darlin'. Rebs:).
