she flutters through the night
like a moth

easing between currents
content with the dark quiet

timid when shadows flee
knowing from experience

the light can sting

  1. lovely poem-daylight can illuminate with a sting.

  2. How we can survive only in dark is a scary thought,

  3. the last line….too good!!!!

  4. It is lovely but the tenses need to be consistent. ‘flee’ needs to be ‘fled’. Or, change all the verbs to present. It depends how you like the sound and feel. Two poems in a week? I don’t know.

  5. From a few words, you capture many layers of understanding…

  7. I especially like the ending of this one. Well done.

  8. Like this, although I feel for the already stung.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
