    dotsThe Veildots

    The clouds are like a thin veil
    trying to obscure the moon.
    A wisp of a mist.
    Hoping to hide the night from my eyes
    Afraid that I might become transfixed.
    But it is just a veil.
    Barely able to dull the beauty of what I see.
    Unable to cover the majesty of the scene before me.
    And so I stand in awe.
    Helpless as this moment tears through me.
    My heart howls
    Trying to find a release
    Some way to cope with this image now burned into my soul
    As I stand there
    Statue still
    Unable to control the torrent raging inside me
    And no one there to witness
    But the moon
    Through a veil.

      Hello, Mr. Swimming Bird.

    I love the idea of this. It has a soft, contemplative feel that is harmonious with images of the veiled moon.

    To tighten it up a little, I would suggest the removal of a few conjunctions such as 'a' and 'the.' These connecting words can bog down the flow where they are unnecessary.

    For a greater sense of immediacy and to remain true to the present tense, it may also help to rethink some of the words ending in -ing.

    Something else I have learned that has been helpful has been to take a look at which lines are capitalized and only capitalize lines after a full stop or which begin a new thought. This can be difficult when most computers auto capitalize each new line.

    Enjoyed reading this!
