Night Sky
I remember the full moon
as a pearl door knob I turned,
and you, behind that door,
brighter than a thousand stars.
But now tonight,
off in a distant corner of the horizon,
a lamp burns
long after day hands sky to night,
and you are there
in the dim glow passing by.

I like how you drew the connection between the moon and a pearl doorknob...this poem is full of soft images and much like love.

Your phrasing reveals a touch of magic, Roger. I admire your choices. You can express the most intimacy with the fewest words of anyone I know. I love your work. Not just this one, but this one as well. ML

I love that you put nature with love because without nature love is weak and unnoticed Such an inspirational poem of love just touched the heart with every word

WOW Roger, this is awesome! You must enter this in the Featured Poem Award contest, it is a poem that needs to be recognized. I love the progression within this poem (both as a reader and a friend)...your presentation is top form...instead of a weighty approach to fading love you have made it full of fading feels soft to me, like the wound has healed without even a scar.


Excellent work! I'll save this gem as a favorite of mine.
