At Rest

by Sugarray77

Above the water,
a pale, mystic moon
is aglow with a dewy, opiate vapor.

Midnight passes in a soft exhale
as the drowsy drip,
                             drip of time
methodically lulls me to sleep.

Nestled under dim whispers of moonlight,
rosemary nods and the lily lolls
until damp mists rise and enshroud
them and the dark, recumbent lake.


Inspired by The Sleeper by Edgar Allen Poe.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
