And other than this

Lake Luzern

moon parts clouds
like a breeze
that bends reeds

scatters diamonds
in dark spaces between
swans on the lake

ignites their withers
in a bath of pearl
ablaze on black water

passing in slow comets
and other than this
leaves them alone.

Love this, Joseph. I'm having deju vu of some kind, after reading/looking.

When? Where? It had something to do with the moon.

The moon, or a moon? Figuring out which might aid your memory recall.

Or not. ;-)

Thanks for your kind comment, Billie.

Nice piece, Joseph. Very visual. I don't know lake Luzern, so to picture it, I substituted a little of lake in the eastern sierras. Hope you don't mind.

Fouad: Thank you, my friend, and nice to see you are with us still in spirit and body. Peace be with you.

Kyle: No substitutions allowed as the the Vierwaldstättersee (Lake of the Four Cantons) is known as Lake Luzern to make it easy for tourists.

Google it up and you will find it far more enchanting than anything our gorgeous Sierras can conjure. Without doubt. ;-)
