Twilight Of Seeded Moon


         Sunflower Stepper by Lisa Graham 

In the twilight of the seeded sun
I walk the path of imagination
where dreams pearl reality’s limbs.

With mystery's prodding I drink the light
until my inner well of who I wish to be
drips you can from my parched lips.

Cradled by the open palmed moon
I feel it polish my rebirth with sandstone stars
and watch doubt’s tattoo fade into memory.

Nice, Susie ~~ My favorite line,
until the well of who I wish to be
set me guessing. I think it will take growing up plus to figure out how that will turn out. (I also had a 'pronoun problem' with it.)
