tim's Bits and Pieces - 58. The Moon Poems

The Moon Poems

 

 

1.

It’s been a constant,

each month of my life

It waxes, wanes and

is full, new and blue

And I childishly believed,

the Man in the Moon

ate the cheese.

 

 

 

2.

In the very early of the morning

The skies are thick with shades of

grey

I wonder if o’er the felted sky

The moon still shines as bright?

 

 

 

3.

We walk together you and I

Under the cold and moonlit sky

Our hands clasped

Hearts as one

The moon’s cool brilliance lights our path

while around us dark forests shun its glow

Their moody shadows await our misstep

ready to swallow us should we stray

 

 

4.

Bright moonlight illuminates the path I walk

It leads to our sweet meeting place

Where we’d hold each other and gently kiss

And I’d delight in your strong embrace

 

Summer’s cool evening breezes found us

Sharing wine, bread and cheeses; hard

Our laughter could be heard o’er the glen

and echoed softly in the old churchyard

 

When the harvest moon, its light did share

We’d meet and then, after a glass or two

O’er this tidy, rolling path we’d wander

Marveling at the orb’s, glorious, orange hue

 

Most winter nights were never clear

And the moon’s soft, reflected glow

Would lighten the grey, woolen skies

As arm-in-arm we walked below

 

Now full circle, has our life come

This path, again, I walk on my own

Above, the moon is full and bright

But March winds chill me to the bone

 

The moon aloft is my only company

While I add fresh flowers before your stone

I’m lonely, my heart hitches and I know

Soon you’ll no longer reside here alone

 

You and I will have eternity together

Fulfilling the promises, we each had made

We’ll stroll this path forever and always

Under the moon’s brilliant cascade.

There is a subtle balance of permanence vs impermanence which flows through all three works . I found them all quite compelling.

These made me smile. Though the second last stanza was hard to read, the one that followed... that’s as it should be. :) 

As always, well done, tim. 

Thanks, Reader. Yeah, i get that ... thank you for your time and comments xoxo

I've always felt it that going camping during a full moon was the best. Spent many a night staring up at the great orb, and dreaming about what the future may hold. Thank you, tim, for reminding me of those times.

Thanks, A.  Never give up dreaming ... xo

The moon is a favorite subject of mine. Your descriptions are beautiful and quickly create a picture in my mind. I think the first poem is my favorite! I too wondered if the man in the moon ate the cheese! 😷😉❤ Thanks.
