Winter Moon


Winter moon in all her veils,

Shrouded like a Muslimah in black chador,

A smudge of light,

A single eye peeps shyly through…

Opaque soft clouds above bare boned trees

Speak of snow in coming,

The ground still dark and bare,

Awaiting Christmas Eve I think,

To bring the magic there

And the lady trade her dark veils

For fresh ones

Sparkling white.

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....

  1. I really enjoyed that. Have you published any collections of your poetry?

      No… only single contest entries here and there. I won a Golden Poet award one year, but couldn’t afford to travel the rather long distance to accept it at the ceremony in person. Meanwhile I’ve written enough poetry to fill several books and then some. I just don’t think there’s a market for it. Do you?


    • ampbreia says:

      And thank you. That’s very encouraging.


  2. You’re very welcome. I think the market for poetry is pretty slim. Most folks prefer more superficial pleasures these days. That said, I plan to publish a book of my poetry later in life.

      You should do it as soon as you can if you mean to. Sometimes later never gets here. Heck, I may just do it myself for the hell of it. Couldn’t hurt even if if it accomplishes nothing.
