You with the deep dark patches
And changing shades of white;
Hiding behind distorted clouds
What secrets streak your face?
Cloaked in your silvery shadow
Pacified by your intimate silence;
Coaxing out the truths within
Why do we confide in you?
In your gentle light of ethereal beauty
Skeins of the past are unraveled;
Entrusted with the burden of one more memory
Where do you store them all?
Caught in the swirl of thoughts
You tremble with clenching stillness;
Charring the uncertainties away
How do you sooth and console the souls?
