the obstinate moon

the obstinate moon

A Poem by Lyn Anderson
"

a little ditty

"
the obstinate moon 
rests in sky so blue
can't help it baby,
it reminds of you --
smiling smugly
at the rising sun
attempting to
push through
the morning pink --

and wishing
you were here 
with me
to chase 
away
the day.

The moon shines for lovers, Lyn.. reminding us that though it might not always display, tis there.. always.. night and day - somewhere. Your words defy criticism.. this poem is beautiful.

Another sure win from the pen of Lyn! ; )
There's nothin' like a stubborn ol' moon battling it out with daylight, trying to last all day … conspiring with two lovers to rob the sun from its due, just to keep them entranced in the notion of gazing together at Luna when so far apart; yet, so close in their hearts and nighttime dreams.

Love the perfect picture and song choices … simply an altogether lovely piece.
Thank you ever-so warmly for sharing You with Us, Dear Lyn ⁓ Richard 🌟

I should bloomin think so, I have just been so busy my end :)
I love all moon writes and this is definitely no exception. This is relatable too in a way..wishing for a loved one to be there to make the day seem shorter. ..
The imagery in the opening stanza made me smile, esp. that of the moon smiling smugly at the rising sun ;)

Oh thank you. I am definitely a fan of the fall and spring when the moon and sun battle it out here... read more

Forever endearing with that bit of sultry you always seem to slip in...I'm hanging on the moon :)

not a problem
There is something special about the 'obstinate moon' , as though she just doesn't want to give way to the rising sun. In the end the moon relents and bides her time for a few hours until she can return.Well done, Lyn.

Thank you. I think so too.
dear Lyn... I have often seen the obstinate Moon in the morning... now I can relate in a poetic way ... it may be an Omen that it is a special day when you have guidance .. like a veil to shield you from the sun that burns. truly, Pat
