Poetic Glimpses
By Don Iannone

1
silver moon rides high
crossing crystalline September sky
hearts fill with glee

2
glittering stardust
nighttime extravaganza
all eyes turn upward

3
poetry
courageous words
words that en-courage

4
happiness
like smoke
eludes our chase

This is really good and so true. I like your poetry. I'll be back in the future.

Elusive happiness is somber way to leave us...
how about some second hand smoke?

Dan said...

I'm en-couraged!

Don,
Beautiful. Each one a treasure. So few words, yet so rich and profound. Thank you so much for them.

Blessings!

beautiful - both inspired and inspiring :)
(i stopped chasing happiness when i realised it comes by itself when the time comes)

Don, I don't always leave comments on your blog but it is always rewarding to read and this no exception. Like Dumbdodi, I think verse four gives a particularly strong image.

Beautiful and thought provoking!

Clean, strong words
Love this entire poem even
if it didn't use an ironic reference
to my blog name!
(and I used to have a photo of my eyes looking upward there...)
You've cogently captured why I'm entranced by the silvermoon...and night...
May glittering stardust land on you with light happy feet

Oh! This reminds me of my drive home last night (after seeing the Dalai Lama :) I looked up at the sky and I don't think I've EVER seen so many stars in my life. It was spectacular. Thank you for your poem and for reminding me of that glorious sky last night :)

I would like to thank all of you for your most generous and kind comments. I've read each one and they mean so much.

Poetic glimpses or short breaths are interesting. A few of you have commented that each could be developed into a longer poem, and you're right. I may do just that.
