Moonflowers – a short poem. All the photographs used to illustrate my poems are my own. The photos were not my inspiration, but I chose them from pictures I’ve taken over the years because they illustate the image or sentiment expressed.


Pale and purple hearts

twine together under the moon

like faint hopes firmly rooted.

Tentative tendrils of shy passion

weave a vital tune.

The quiet deep song seeps slowly

from their hearts

and kisses the ghostly bloom.
