In my youth I soulful sang
                   in the white light
                   of the moon.


In my youth I naked danced
                   under fantastic flashes
                   of Aurora Borealis.

In my youth I torture howled
                   at shadowless dark
                   of storm witer skies.


Now I rest uneasy
                   longing for the
                                    songs
                                    dances
                                     howls
                    of my youth.

Don't we all at some point or other? You've stirred memories, Roger. Well done. Love and peace to you,

You don't just write with soul and guts, you choreograph. I usually find that 3 reads is minimum in the first sitting... printing for further absorption generally follows. This theme may be universal; the written 'utterances' are entirely yours.

(It's a long way from Catholic school, isn't it?)

You bring back memories. As a child one cannot wait to grow up. Grown up we spend the rest of our lives trying to find that child. Well written piece.......

Be safe,
