Romantic Couple in Paradise Landscape

lunar effects

lunar luminescence wraps
such a thing unnoticed
such a thing untouched

lunar drama draws
kiss soft as wind
kiss flimsy as fragrance

lunar tide pulls
part of any season
part of a motif

lunar mask hides
feasible rejection
feasible betrayal

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. The last stanza gives this the ouch factor!


  2. Hello.
    Love the word “luminescence”. Nice imagery & flow until I felt the sting of the end. Thanks for sharing & visiting. Thanks also for NO VERIFICATION! 🙂

    Thoughts Of Beauty In The Stillness Of Dawn…

  3. It was romantic all the way through until the end and then it reminds us to be careful of falling in love on vacation, because it may not be the real thing. The moonlight and the walks on the beach can sometimes fool you into thinking it’s the real thing.

  4. Kiss flimsy as fragrance……..what a fabulous line and thought.
