Have you ever been SO bored in a meeting that if you didn't start playing with some writing, you were sure to find either sleep or madness? I decided to try a simple quatrain on Moon Knight, but as the meeting dragged on it turned into a sonnet:

Egyptian moon soaks any path you take,

Enveloping your tense form in white light,

As you prefer it. Let approaching night

Marauders see you, consider the stakes.

Egyptian steel cut into curves for flight,

Moons in your hands as if you were the god;

Gilt ankhs cross in your hands as if you hold

The over flowing Nile by Pharoah’s right.

Egyptian idol wrapped in silken folds

Reminds you of the task to serve and shield

late travelers, weak ones; to try to wield

The fist that strikes from moon-bleached shroud.

You hold the thought while tortured brain withstands:

The death conquering power, in your hands.

**********

Then a couple days later, it was a dull conference call. Same theme, but in free verse:

Moon Knight

Bathed by moon,

your thoughts attuned

to the ancient voice,

you wrap the traveler,

in the folds

of your unseen cape.

Ankh of gold,

you hold your blows

in reserve, await

the moment foes

commit beyond return.

Stalking, striking,

dealing such justice

as can be had.

Deliberate,

too controlled

to be mad.

In my hour of finding you

I missed the most important clue

I ran the race when I should have walked

I talked the talk when I should have listened

In my moment of despair

I closed my eyes and found you there.

I understood when all was gone

I took your hand and we went on

In my hour of finding you

I learn to see that dreams come true

I looked inside and found my soul

I gave up grieving and most of all

I learned to just enjoy the fall

I fall each time I see you

All the hope held tight

I keep you and you keep me each night

No place like the words

nobody follows anybody we simply live and see where the story takes us.

Stretching the imagination to eternity

I find the time to post my friends to seek the shelter from the storms and hold the hand of unhindered passion for a time at least.

I find the time time to wish on stars and dream of life out past mars to whisper to angels and think of saints to cry a single tear and let it fade.

I find the time to write this here to remind the ones I hold most dear and say without a moments doubt what I feel the worlds about. To dream the dream and then let out a shout and listen to the sound of sorrow.

I find the you and you the me I understand the raging sea but do you think one day you'll see the road to redemption or will we float lost in a sea of chaos unseen by the eye of God.

I find the chance no chance at all for playing dice with the soul is a sure way to fall and the fall is far and the fires rage on but the night is young and the dreams of humanity yet to be written down. What dreams we have yet to behold.

I find a pen and begin to write.

@wim_garnet: lol, it's not all that. It's just to remind myself that I've read this, and to let you know that I read it. :)
