FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real)

Before dawn, the sky is filled

with two full moons, strange

since at last glimpse midnight,

she was mostly swallowed by

a circular shadow.  Caught in dreams,

I light a candle, reflecting on my

windowpane something significant

I’ve asked to be shown.

Be careful what you ask for,

my true being plastered over

with so many false beliefs

until I am encased in this marble

statue, a derivative

of

something greater than I can

wrap my mind around.

There is nothing left

to do besides

play

crunching over the ice

with the bitter cold

stealing my breath

aiming my camera in every direction

in a futile attempt

to capture the beauty

of this instant.

    1. Thanks for your praise, Tracy, it means a lot! I took some photos of the surreal beauty of yesterday’s dawn, the full moon hanging in the western sky, branches outlining the blush of the sky in the east, and then played with art filters to create what you see here.
