Spectral for One Single Impression














The ghosts of conscience
shine through the clouds of denial~
full moon of regret.

I love the pairing of poem and image here ... the idea of regret being as full as the moon ... each regret is truly a vast universe of loss. Peace, JP/deb

I like that you chose to illuminate regrets with the light of the moon. This seems like a very gentle but hauntingly sad poem.

plump, but only in the dark,secretive under moonlight.

A poignant poem.
