Poetry – “Twilight Moths”





Twilight Moths // by Jennifer Patino


From the quiet of my corner,
I watch the twilight moths gather,

their feather light humming
draws the full moon closer

I see through a needle’s eye,
the ash grey craters,

thumbprints of Creator,
and I think of my Grandmothers,

Moon up above,
and my earthly one in Spirit

whose gossamer wings now dance
in the fireflies’ glow

Her wisdom floats on the desert breeze,
and I breathe in shaky, and deep

because now I know, for one moment,
that oneness is near

Then the night birds call
the angels home, and the

celestial spectacle before me clears,
and succumbing to lunar mysteries,

the dusk moths silently
disappear as the stars listlessly fall

    I love reading your work.

    I wonder if you’ll ever know how gifted you are?

    I hope you sometimes forget what you wrote, open a drawer, and get high upon the beauty of your own words. It would be a shame to think you never get to revel in the lines the way we do โค

    1. I do admit to finding things I’ve written at times & I can’t believe that I did indeed write it. I do acknowledge that I take my time & work hard at writing, & I more often than not enjoy what I write. ๐Ÿ™‚ I do consider being able to write a gift & I am thankful for it. I am happy to be able to share & feel good about that too. Thanks for your awesome words, Monty! You always make me blush with your compliments. haha ๐Ÿ˜€
