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.

A wonderful promise of love and hope. I think I've always been fascinated by the moon. My children, for Christmas, a few years ago got me a beautiful telescope. Many are the night that my two girls and I have used it to look at the craters of the moon.

Take care - Dave

Yes Margie hugs galore but what about that big fat wet one on lips of evermore.
No doubt with blue moons everywhere you turn,
this next year has a leg up on good fortune.
Your strong, delightful 'yippee!' says it all.

Thank you for yipping at the moon with me, sweet friend! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
I have to growl. Birthday falls in the middle. New moon in the sky. Another night of darkness, and I admit I am being overly dramatic.

A blue moon in your birth month is a good sign . . . be prepared to dance in 2018 *wink! wink!*

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!
