Puzzling Lantern

In the twisting fields of night phantoms scatter
warning in the knotted ivy
as it writes unentagale warnings in its florid cursive.
the moon smirks mysteries,
and floats through bare spotless dreams.
As the white washed houses windows remain unlamented
With no illuminations.
The walls in my bedroom know
what things are afoot in the night
whispers advice to the window shutters
as they rhythmatical bump against the walls
as wind combs the roofs &slates
and porches for beings
that can ride its eddies
as leaves in a storm.
i only know my lack
of unfolding wisdom.
All around me seems to know
that the world is moving toward it's changing
and my puzzling lantern
lies cold beneath my bed.
