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 Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
