Blue Moon Song

Blue Moon Song

A Poem by barleygirl
"

blue moon = 2 full ones in the same month . . .

"


Like a lollipop of cool wintergreen
there’s a fat full moon on the rise
thinking ahead to twenty-eighteen
how will she gild the night skies?

Having been born in early July
I’ve embraced the moonchild sign
dancing moonbeams lyrically fly
luring my wild child with shine.

“It only happens once in a blue moon”
that’s what moon mystics proclaim
two blue moons will be here soon
sparks to kindle our heart’s flame.

Twenty-eighteen starts with a splash
portending better days to come
some say moon mystique is balderdash
naysayers go sit on your thumb!

All the goodness we’ve been asking for
will grace all our lives before long
brotherly love and an end to war
as we chant the blue moon song.

This lovely and enchanting poem makes me think of the moon as a magical lamp gifted by God to his children on earth. A poem full of hope, optimism and a child-like fervour that I often feel in your spirit and one that I relate to so fondly, myself. Yes, let the naysayers sit on their thumbs. We are assured of a brighter 2018! Cheers Margie!

A magickal energy to have two in one month :) There is hope and new beginnings to a full moon and a beauty like nothing else. Here's to 2018 being illuminated and the wrongs being dominated by the rights :)

Oh my God, on my "Birth-month" this year, I'll get two full moons?! Hope that brings me some luck since lately it clearly looks like I ran out of it ! Can't wait for my 283rd and 284th full moons :)

My youngest is a gemini and I can relate to this through her.
Her b-day on the first. The moon is always a real attraction to a child's eyes and a pondering in their thinking as they gaze at it.
Nice write!

As a moonchild myself and having being born in early July as well, I appreciate this poem a lot. The first line itself sounds so visually apt and appealing!!! This was enchanting and has a wonderful and optimistic tone to it! Well written!

Magical, mystical, “Barleygirl Blue Moon Song”! You took me ‘up, up and away’ again with the great positivity, musicality, imagery, rhythm and rhyme of this poem Margie! Love your “Wild Child” self. Stay wonderfully wild always and 4-Ever! Xo

Tonight we have a very different picture -- a wonderful bright full moon , exploding fireworks all night and distraught dogs barking. Lucky you, with your quiet surroundings. Next few appearances over here should be more in keeping with your idyllic vision. I wait with breathless anticipation. There should be dew and frost to create a sparkle to the garden. As you say....yippee! (((Hugs)))
