THE QUANDARY OF A MOTH (Q STYLE)


Darkness comes
To the forest sky
Beckoning
In the distance
You catch my eye

I am drawn
To your illumination
Forbidden
I flitter and flutter
With desperation

I bash and crash
Into your light
Blinded
Your glow so lovely
It drives my plight

In your passion
Wings are singed
Flightless
Seeking no release
'Till day begins

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
