Sherry Cogan
Inspiration Piece

By Teri Mason Riffle


I am tired…
not at all inspired
I have no time
or right frame of mind


I am surrounded by people
yet I feel alone

I close my eyes and sigh

A pale, peaceful moon rises before me
its face veiled in a crystalline cloud
I watch as it breaks free
of the icy shroud
and I bask
its effervescent glow

I awaken on the sea…
arched red rocks surround and soar
Gentle waves carry me
to an unknown shore
and I ask
myself what I already know


I am surrounded by no one
and I feel at home

I close my eyes and smile
