Poetry Life and Mind-ful Things

Sights And Sounds

Courtesy Google Images
It was a moonlit night
Cool was the breeze
Which moves leaves
In trees

Two layers of clouds
In the sky above
The lowest
Moving fast swiftly 

The sights and sounds
Of this night
Although I am here
Have taken me away

To my place of escape
From the mortar and brick
For a moment in mind
For a moment in time

These are a few of my favorite things


This is my entry for Poetry Potluck where the theme is
These are a few of my favorite things.
