       Nocturne;
I conjure the moon
as dusk crests,
       a wave across the sky


       I am lovely and lonely in
       the night, shadow-
       shackled to the mountainside

and the moths
unfurl their hamsa-wings as
mama calls me in.
This is the beginning to something else, and as such will probably be added to. :)

A prelude to what... or is that yet to come ;-) Im not sure if it is the word "Nocturne" but i almost draw a comparison to Chopin piece which is also "lovely and lonely"

Pretty. I must now wonder what "hamsa-wings" are/means.

Thank you. :) A hamsa is a palm-shaped protection amulet common throughout the Middle East and some of Africa. It depicts an eye in the center of the palm. I semi-intended it to be a reference to these moths, which look like they have eyes on their wings. :)

Thank you. I've heard of those amulets before but not by the proper names. I get the reference with the moths perfectly now.

Sounds nice, but I would love rhymes, syllables and rhythm =)
Reply

Concora Featured By Owner May 25, 2013   Writer
I think that, read aloud, this does have a good rhythm. :) And, seeing as this is free-verse, there is no intentional rhyme nor syllable count. However, this project in its entirety will have different forms. :) Thank you for reading. :)

Hmm, yeah, I noticed, of course, that this is free verse; But I imagined it with rhyme and it seemed epic. Nevermind that, though, it wont change
