This is my bechemen poem competition entry. Hope you like it! The theme was 'place' so my place is 'in love.'
The Nebula, like the moon's reflection on irritated waters, rests in the dark sky.
The stars dancing within it create intricate patterns, circles, snakes.
The moon casts only weak shadows on the gnarled roots of the trees, and fireflies hover past.
The waterfall behind me is a sweet lullaby, contrasting with the white-gold liquid pulsing out of my chest.
because I'm here alone.
