“Perfect Balance” Surreal Art Photography by Luisa Azevedo

You moose remember this
a ship is just a ship
my antlers hold the sky–
The world will always welcome me
as eons go by.
And when two attractive moose,
both single, on the loose
meet, in a grunting lullaby,
the sentimental creatures in life
as eons go by.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
