Moonlit Heart (Poem)

A flutter of hydrangea bloom
emerald leaves of aloe, rose and herb
dense umbrage of interlaced sycamore
book facedown, sun burns the blurb

Hidden collection and botanic prints
empty doorways full of gloom and mildew
But outside, above the locked secrets
Glittering splendour looms lucid blue

There's something in your moonlit heart
a query of half sunken diamonds
that glitter in the honeyed reflection
of heather fields, cooperage and highlands

- Nathan van der Monde
