Midnight Moonshine

Cool moonlight on a quiet night,
Shines upon my silk-curtained bed.

Denying me sleep with sudden flashes of insight
That leave me restless, and yearning instead,

For June showers to drench the heat of my parched heart,
And, envelope me with memories tinged with your scent.

    Love the imagery! I just made my own blog three days ago and I had never even thought about how much underground poetry is out there on the internet. It’s really cool! I’m glad I got to read yours.

    Very beautiful piece and soothing. If I may advise, I think you should add a comma after “For June showers” .
    Either way the scent of this poem shall linger , so I thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚
