Nocturnal Encounter

We were both walking the night

Knowing that the day breaks

The bones of freedom

Nothing ever took me by surprise

In the way you did

You showed me everything:

The city's blurred splendour

White elephants around the corner

Nightingales singing bass

My guilt dispersed into tiny scrapes

That you brushed away swiftly

And then

You touched me

Beneath all the layers

Now the moon's shining through me

This is just brilliant. "Now the moon's shining through me"... what a powerful line... when in love we feel we can expose ourselves completely to that person who loves us in return.

Great poem Heike. I love the way you arrange the line breaks, so that the ambiguity of the words you use is emphasised, such as "breaks" at the end of line 2. It sounds like quite an encounter took place here, either spiritual or romantic. But it left the person you address in the poem able to see right through you, perhaps in a literal and metaphorical sense. There is so much to this poem, it needs to be reread. And rereread... Well done, Heike.

I wait impatiently for the next poem from you Heiki and you never disappoint! This is exquisite. I agree with Joanna below. I feel that this poem will evoke such tender memories in anyone who has known that sweet experience of falling so much in love 'that the moon shines through them'.
phenomenal imagery. A poet to your bones. thank you for reminding me how it should be done

I loved this one especially Heike, this was reminding me of an incident, but not as a whole- in pieces, bit by bit, and the rest just puts itself together. Wonderful.

What a fascinating encounter. As always, Heike, your phrasing and imagery are exquisite. ML
