For Serenity

4 Comments

Serenity knocks.
She’s the Blue Moon visitor.
The one most folks miss.

She’s rare, that she is.
Rarer than that famed blue moon.
Long-awaited.
Certain. Predicted.
Predictable?
That’s a guess-
An uncertain one at that.

She waits, upon your door.
In those moments
When all’s dark.
No, not quite; more, Blue, like.

She waits, so quiet.
You never know.
And so, never
Invite her in.

You’re so far gone,
You know she
Wouldn’t visit-
So you don’t expect her.

She still knocks-
(Against all odds, whaddya know!)
In the dead of your night.
When your moon is blue.

But, by then, almost always,
You’re shut down-
And the sign is on,
Your door simply announces –

Closed.

She lingers
In the hope
You’ll hear that knock.

Knowing you need her;
Her clear and moonlit coolness.

Waiting,
For you to know-
That, that, about yourself.

And when you do-
Fling open wide, your door:

She’s pooled into the dew,
That lingers on your lashes.

That frame your empty eyes.

  1. A poem for serenity
    Ends in melancholy
    The moon blue
    The mood blue
    Nevertheless, there’s poignancy!

  3. And yeah they can help clean
    Brush off the grime from the scene
    Show how better things can be seen
    True,tears can make one serene
