Pressed hard against the midnight sky
A crescent moon, a pleasant face
A mountain of blue feelings
A grey apple, bitten and luscious
Long mascara eyelashes, a fringed frame
The whisper of wind and the solitude of a happy hello
Hazy sunset, lemon clouds and orange the magnet
to our hopes, dreams and fears
Hold me hard and long, I will not escape
I cannot stray, I am forbidden cunning
This is my rendezvous, my premiere
and the gaslight flickers on me
The amber glow a welcome mat
Yes, give me this excuse to rewrite the tale
and the night prussian and neutral
Will like a playlet backdrop
Capture your advance and clap me
with a motion reprise



I originally wrote this piece on the theme of acceptance in 1990.
People generally find it very hard to accept people as they are
without first imposing conditions, classifications and judgmental views
based on their personal observations and conclusions built up from life’s experiences, what we commonly refer to as ‘dogma’ and yet we all long to be accepted, to ‘belong’ and be ‘accepted’ for who we are… .    edenbray
