Riding the Night


Riding the Night

A spiritual connection
that crosses all divides,
A light that shines in every corner
where every shadow hides,
A dream that’s shared
by kindred souls
and felt by phantom hands,
A lover known,
but not yet met,
far off in distant lands,
A wealth of knowledge
in just one look,
if only I could see,
My saving grace
who slays the dragon
and rides the night with me.

Love it, great word combinations and a subject close to my heart. I have several along this line, great work and just the right length. Dreamers and romantics can but don't have to be the same thing. There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow either, I'll keep looking, be well, k

Beautifully surreal .. you write simultaneously whilst you sleep! Mysteriously .. your pen discloses! Top .. top .. top shelf write!

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
