talking to myself: a wayra

hush. whispers the moon
to my walking worry. shh.
shallow faith, sink and savor
such unsure shore. in your
night dress, count holy graces. hush.

  1. I could see myself in this: a “walking worry” (sentient phrase, brilliant anthropomorphism) by moonlight, and then the motherly “hush” giving voice to a heavenly wisdom where one counts one’s “graces.” Touched me where I live, Rosemarie. Thank you.

  2. Oh my heart this is absolutely exquisite! I love the quiet contemplation, the moon and incorporation of rhythm and sound here. Yes, hush to worries 💝💝💝💝

  3. Romantic, spirited, and clever–this checks all the wayra boxes. Impressive to imply it is better to hush than to curse. I may have to try that sometime.
