eyes

even the moon
s.i.g.h.s
at the sight
of your incandescent eyes
pregnant with light

    Dear Himani,

    I like this a lot. I like the “s.i.g.h.s,” drawn out to mingle with “eyes.”

    What a lovely term, “pregnant with light.” We are all thus pregnant. May that come when we fully give birth.

    Thank you for this!

    All good wishes,

    robert

    I like your poem. Why did you separate the letters of ‘sigh’ with periods? I’m just wondering about the meaning.

    I like this. Reminds me of the two poems below I originally posted in this post that go with a picture edit I posted with it of me inside a blue moon – http://21shadesofblue.com/2013/11/20/new-haiku-silent-sighing-cyan-moon-rising/

    “Haiku – Silent Sighing, Cyan Moon Rising”
    by Ry Hakari

    Meditative moon,
    wrapped in prayerful thought, spread hands
    lifting incense high

    “He Bids His Beloved Be At Peace”
    by William Butler Yeats

    I hear the Shadowy Horses, their long manes a-shake,
    Their hoofs heavy with tumult, their eyes glimmering white;
    The North unfolds above them clinging, creeping night,
    The East her hidden joy before the morning break,
    The West weeps in pale dew and sighs passing away,
    The South is pouring down roses of crimson fire:
    O vanity of Sleep, Hope, Dream, endless Desire,
    The Horses of Disaster plunge in the heavy clay:
    Beloved, let your eyes half close, and your heart beat
    Over my heart, and your hair fall over my breast,
    Drowning love’s lonely hour in deep twilight of rest,
    And hiding their tossing manes and their tumultuous feet.
