This work has reached the exceptional level
So delicate and fleeting but welcome in the dark.

My Visitor

by Barry Penfold

It crept along the window sill
Then moved across the pane
Spread across the eiderdown
and then moved on again

It trickled to the carpet
then climbed the bedroom wall
One moment it was with me,
next moment , not at all.

It disappeared and reappeared
like something in a dream
But happily, my visitor was
a shiny bright moonbeam.


Moonbeams enter without noise or alarm and leave as calm as can be.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
