Trod half of my life

On the white horse
Galloped away
With endless joy
Treasured smiley pearls
And golden toys
In every step
I bloomed like flowers
Although I knew
I would dry and die next day
Did not give ear to my mind
In tranquility I spoke to my soul
Ripples winged in the depth of sea
Fall of petals and flow of fragrance
Shared and gathered
Between bones and withered skin
I lifted me up to the music of blue
Magically walked and danced
In the white eternal dew
Suddenly unnoticed
A page of black humor conspired
I was not surprised
Accepted as mortal diplomacy
Possessed of my destiny
Yielded by time
Frozen everything
Clouds stars rivers feathers of birds
Flowers and green paths
House of my eternity suffered
Metamorphosed black
Multicolored sailing ship
Turned white
Determination deterred
Time hollowed and promises less
Gifted me with a deserted letterbox
And a black horse
To live and carry on the rest of life
Moon smiled at me
Show me the black wound
Of its snow white body
And said you see I pained
Despite, with pleasure
I bloom everyday
Like an eternal flower
In the dark of night
Flooding cool beams of light
Metamorphose begun
I felt the deep turn inside
Black horse became dark night
I became the glittering moon
Of snow white sight

  1. William Shakespeare's Juliet tells Romeo,
    O, swear not by the moon, th' inconstant moon,
    That monthly changes in her circle orb,
    Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.

    The sun always illuminates exactly one-half of the moon, but we see it at different angles as it rotates around the earth. With the naked eye, we can see only the part of the moon that the sun is illuminating. A "moon cycle" (or "lunar cycle") is the moon's continuous orbit around the earth. Its appearance (the "phase") changes and thus gives us an indication of the moon's progress in the cycle (the "age"). We give the parts of the moon cycle different names, according to how the moon appears to us:
    New (also called the Dark Moon) - not visible
    Waxing Crescent
    First Quarter - commonly called a "half moon"
    Waxing Gibbous
    Full - we can see the entire illuminated portion of the moon
    Waning Gibbous
    Third Quarter - another "half moon", but the illuminated part is opposite of the First Quarter
    Waning Crescent
    New - back to the beginning
    This complete lunar cycle (New Moon to New Moon) is also called a "lunation". During this time the moon will completely circle the earth.
