Layers

1

On the blue horizon
Layered lovely
Texturing
Lines shading
Ripples of
Humid crisp air
Filling spaces

Movements
My consciousness
Playing games
In all seriousness

I don’t know how
To get through
Every piece
Of this

2

The sky is a wanderer
The moon, a steady
Mystical creature

I learned that
The moon is not
As shiny as it appears

Still full moon rays
Pour into every
Pore of my being

3

It makes me sad
To think science
Is bored of
The moon

How?

4

Undulating
Thoughts
Like clouds
Slipping in
& out of
Condensation

5

Moving
Turning
Over sleep

Painsomnia night
A wishful write

Cradling routine

Refrain

Authour’s note: day 27 of a month of poetry 2021, a piece for Marlon’s 7 Minute Micro-poetry Monday (#7MMP) & the Word of the Day Challenge prompt ‘science’. I used the featured image as reference.
