Me & the Moon



Have you seen the moon lately? That luminous sphere who reflects the sun’s light; for he hasn’t a light of his own. The moon; whose presence inspires howling and kisses, floods and poetry; gazing silently earthward, spotlighting our deeds and dreams, keeping our secrets, making no judgments.

Twirling, yet going no where, he is chained to his course; a muted witness whose face pales as our silent tears fall, and blushes pink with desire as lovers fold into each other’s arms, naked and one, in his milky light.

Sometimes I feel like it’s just me and the moon.

Beautiful writing, my friend. I would like to watch the moon from a warm beach once again, I feel in different places the moon is not quite so bright!

Thanks Kris and Grigore, I love living on the west coast of Florida where the moon is bright and the sun sets are also fantastic. When I lived in St. Croix the stars were so bright and thick it took my breath away.

Hi there!

Found your blog & post through the Blog Farm and I'm glad I did.
Your post & photo reminded me of when I traveled through Florida many moons ago. I remember looking at the moon while driving to Key West - I don't think I have ever seen the moon again quiet like I did back then.

Hi Martin, I agree. It seems the moon hangs heavy and soulful here, tinted by the sun...so lovely and stirring.

So poetic, Leah. It seems you've found what you "do have." ;)
