    Inspired by Heartbeat & "The Stylistics"

    if I sit in my
    picture window
    right here
    ....gazing at the moon

    I can go anywhere ~
    do anything

    even blow kisses
    on dancing
    moonbeams....

    the moon
    shines moonlight
    from its
    full face
    & anoints
    my eyes...

    with moon dust

    & I can see rooftops
    half~lit by moonshadows

    ...the silver
    stream of night's light
    reveals a sleeping world
    oblivious to

    moonglow.

    nightflight.

    and the waking world
    of shadow~lovers

    people like me
    who night~dream
    ~openly

    if I sit in my
    picture window
    right here...

    I can feel a special
    bond with another
    sleepless one
    blowing kisses
    across the sky

    on dancing
    moonbeams

    :heart:

    This took me back, to the many times I would look out of my bedroom window into the night sky.

    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem.
