Poem of the Week: Moon Over Water

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “Moon Over Water”.

And now for this week's poem:

Moon Over Water
The undulating
waters of her heart
cast waves of want
across the silver dark.
She saw the great sun fall,
the quiet moon rise,
seas flood with molten shine,
then with surprise,
as she perceived
the wonder, felt the balm,
of brassy daylight
turn to silver calm.
