Moonlight on my mother's face

Moonlight on my mother's face

A Poem by Sanober

You have probably seen

a moon
drizzling its luminous liquor
across the high 
and low seas 

a moon
glowing like silver-gold fairies
through the slightly 
damp leaves 
of an almond tree 

a moon over mountains
and hillocks
seeping into the roofs
of small, humble homes

over winter-sown
dreams and landscapes

a moon
that sometimes
looks like a mellowed sun

pale and bloodless
by noon

a moon
that rests in the quiet corners
of a lover’s lips

you might have danced
in a moon-rain, too

but, my friend
have you ever seen

a moon


over another moon?

dear Sanober... one of our poetry friends has
informed me that you are safe after the earthquake
in Nepal. Looking forward to reading your
poetry. truly, Pat

dear Sanober... Perhaps you are thinking of your
Mother's face as beautiful and mysterious as the
Moon with the wisdom of the ages caressing your
being with tenderness and compassion...
Sweet poetry... truly enchanting ... Pat

dear Sanober.. I feel as though my tears
are blessed, as though I am on a quest where
moon rain falls gently on lovers sighs.
Your poetry touches my heart with
melodies of butterfly wings. truly... Pat

The imagery in this write is absolutely exquisite, Sanober! I especially liked "that rests in the quiet corners of a lover's lips". The fact you tell us this is about your mom in the title is very touching. She is your moon....she will always be the light in your life and always lead you to good thoughts. I can not say enough about this one, Sanober.....I am dancing in the moon-rain of your words! :) Lydi**
