#WDYS — Like a Moth

He was like a moth
A moth attracted to light
A light at the end of the tunnel
A tunnel under the canopy of trees
Trees that stretched to the horizon
A horizon on the other side of the pond
A pond with a surface like a mirror
A mirror he cracked when he dove in
In his quest to reach the light
A light that he was attracted to
Attracted to like he was a moth

    This poem, given its circularity, is H.O.T!!! (About 360 degrees, I’d say). Awesome work, Fan

      I didn’t realize there was a name to what I wrote. I just wrote what occurred to me when I saw the picture.
