Moon Pool

I have left behind me the dark deep lake

with the threatening shadows waving,

with the wild waves crashing and

breaking on the rocky shore.

Walked away from it all.

Taken the path to the sweet water,

to the pool bathed in moonlight.

Bathed in smooth bright light.

Free of ripples.

Free of shadows.

Smooth and clear.

As if it has swallowed the

tranquility of the moon.

Taken in all it’s peace

so I can wallow in it.

I will not go back

to the dark lake.

Not this time.

Not ever. 


No more.
