Untitled (trailing behind a coquettish moon)

Spread the love

I listen to the gentle stirring of the moon,
as though hope spreading its amber wing
taste its varying mood and frame of mind
like sangria coupled with rainier cherries.

Oh! what does it feel gliding alone tonight
does it breathe the same despair as we do,
I trail behind and observed quiet strength
I watch as tears flowed as strand of pearls.

Perhaps the moon has grown weary of heart
and wishes for a couple more merrier sights.
I offer what seemed like a thousand dreams,
hear its laughter as sweet as a nightingale β€”

for the moon had yet to share its tale.

    Everything you write is so beautiful, Sanaa.

    I love the image of the moon as an amber owl gliding alone through the night, Sanaa, and the idea that ”the moon has grown weary of heart’ – it’s used so much in romantic writing it must be wondering when its time will come to sparkle rather than shine.

    I like the image of tears as strands of pearls and sending a thousand dreams to her. I think she weeps with us sometimes. Beautiful write, Sanaa.

    A beautiful write Sanaa, it is like the moon keeps returning the choices to you, showing you all she wants is what you really truly want ;o) xxx

    This is truly an intoxicating poem and I Luv this twist of humanity in your desire to offer something to moon. We humans are great takers. Is nice to see us gravitating towards giving

    Much love…

    How many years has the moon looked down on us and inspired both poets and lovers alike, lets hope she doesn’t lose her influence over us and “grown weary of heart” as I love having her inspire us so.

  7. Kim M. Russell says:

    You are most definitely a moonstruck poet, Sanaa!
    I like your questions:
    ‘…what does it feel gliding alone tonight
    does it breathe the same despair as we do’
    and the thought that the moon has perhaps ‘grown weary of heart’.

    ” sangria coupled with rainier cherries.” Lovely …. enjoyed the descriptions throughout.. I wonder … you start of with present tense “I listen”. What if you keep it that way throughout – do you think it reads better … end with ” “the moon HAS yet to … etc” What do you think? It is a beautiful poem.
