    I wet my hair with mountain snow.

    The world’s incredible smoothness
    lulls me. The moon is gone. The child
    and her ocean are silent. Still.
    Asleep, so desperately asleep.

    The moon is gone and it is like forgetting
    the face of a loved one
    who hated you.

    Without a ripple, the ocean secedes.
    The mountain grows and grows and the snow
    takes away. It buries the jade stars. It buries
    the lost night sky, the wandering emptiness.
    It buries the child, and she sleeps on. The world
    is cold midnight silk.

    Handful by handful, my hair whitens.

      I totally love the time-lapse effect you used here. I also like to use camera effects in my work. My own poem "Node exploding" comes to mind, where I used a 4 step zoom in the middle of it. Actually the whole poem revolves around that effect. Maybe you can read it. I don't know if you'll like it though, it's kinda brutal...

      This is a beautiful passage into night and being and growing and giving and taking. There is something graceful and cleansing about it all. And I was quite taken by it.

    The imagery is fantastic, to the point where I would love to someone produce a piece of artwork in inspiration.

      You had me at the first line.

    This seems so sad and haunting. It speaks of loss, but in such a beautiful way. It's like a sad embrace, or something similar.

    It buries the jade stars. It buries my heart. I want to sing and sigh, I want to wrap my wings around you.

      note for other readers: lacunae = a gap (for eg. a lexical gap, i lack of words)

    I didn't make any sense of your poem beyond the individual words. But your poem is still strikingly beautiful... and I normally hate confusing, ethereal, gossamery stuff.

    Can't pick out a phrase I really liked... I liked all of it.

    who hated you.'

      this is an impressive heartfelt reverence. What does Lacunae mean?.
    Well done. Joachim.
