half a moon

Supermoon 2013, Julio Cortez, AP 

after climbing that summit
it is impossible to descend
but the voices are asking me to risk it
I might give in to pressure
nothing happens without any smoke
I do not  scare easily from the demons within my head
even if my belly heaves with tension

"I will carry that torch for you
many Supermoons may come and go"

How well the picture and the poem compliment each other. Then the play of the demons within the head implying the viewers was a masterstroke.

This is absolutely breathtaking. I'm so glad you visited my blog site at Constant Thoughts, so I could have a chance to read your poetry. Very touching, just the 3 I have gotten to so far. BTW: I can understand the spam thing. It is so annoying and difficult.

Nothing happens without any smoke - isn't that ever so true. We always risk something to achieve. Nice one.
