The hunters moon


Recommended Posts

On the Lyme coast I

encountered a mermaid

with ghosts in her eyes-

she gave me a pearl and

sang half a song-if I

found a moon the size

of this pearl I would

hear the sound of a ghost

with moons in his eyes

finishing this song and

boundless riches would be

my prize. For many days

and nights I hunted this

moon-I spoke with eyeless

ghosts and joked with

song-less mermaids. On a

particular night I felt

the delicate caress of

a distant song to the

winds a moon eyed ghost

had given a tongue they

sang with him and I received

rings of silver and gold.

where did you come up with the ideas in this creative poem? this is onee of the most original poems i have ever come accross. i say that because some of my poetry that i write explores the same type of boundaries this type of poem here of yours avenue and venture explores. i enjoyed this by the way.
