When darkness
has harnessed my heart
in its talons of fright;
when blackness
has nested itself as ache
deep in my stomach;
when November displays
its terror as angst;
my darling come closer
and crack me your moon-smile
delightfully pearly,
to lighten my gloom.

Quadrille at dVerse, the word is crack and De hosts.

  1. /when blackness has nested itself as ache/ hooked me hard, brother. Do you have a holiday like Thanksgiving to brighten the gloom of November?

  2. Every word is perfect. I like this one a lot. Every time I think I’ve found my favorite Bjorn poem, another one takes its place. Love that cracking the pearly moon smile. It’s simply over the top!

  3. There is something about November that I think you could only describe so perfectly for me in this quadrille. I can relate.Thank goodness for that smiley moon to shed some light.

  4. How cozy and delightful Bjorn. Love how that moon-smile can lighten the gloom. We used the some similar words in our poem, smiles~

  5. I couldn’t help but smile, Björn, when I read ‘my darling come closer / and crack me your moon-smile’, which lit up my day after the November blackness that ‘nested itself as ache / deep in my stomach’. The farther north, the gloomier the November – we need all the moon smiles we can get!
