sleepless sentinels

awake with the Moon's

brightening of the night

I could have been a vampire.

Lying in wait as if preparing an ambush

I could have been a tiger in Blakes forest

burning bright.

I am in fact like a watchman

while I sit beside the window

helping the moon to watch over

the night itself

both of us partners in time

had to log back on guys otherwise, ignorance would have looked like it had got the better of me.

I'm also posing the same question as Leon-
come on grampsies! spill the truth!

no matter if one or both of you have put this piece together
it is wonderful.

lovely stuff Patricia. I'm wondering if any jealousy arises between you two as to who the better poet is or do you jointly compose each one?
