Dverse Open Link Night


February 5, 2014 by petrujviljoen


Wind rocking the shade,

light’s shadow flickers on the wall,

base weighted down.

The person within illuminated, waiting.

Making time, in the meantime, playing games.

The round bulb a poor reminder of that other light,

the crescent moon, waxing, as it moves on.


Orbiting the earth also turning, circling the sun, a still star.

Dizzy, spiralling, falling into light.

The person illuminated within, now keeps still,

a star in own right.

  1. I like this a lot Petru.. the images of the moon, vs the light inside…

    when we can accept that light that is inside us
    and let it shine….giving ourselves sour own light
    it is a good thing…self sustaining

    nice… i love the mood in this… how the things around us move and we find ourselves reflected a bit… a part of the bigger picture…breathing the moment..

    • Thanks Claudia. I’ve been moon gazing for a while and am often astonished at the speed of it’s journey across the sky; even if we know logically it’s the earth moving too.
