Moon Shots


Did I hear howling on the midnight breeze
your refrains harmonize with spirits almighty
a lithe arabesque backlit naked ebony trees
when Granny Moon donned her ruby nightie

swoops to the earth kissing grey tree tops 
spotlight of moon shards chasing their shadows
she gracefully crosses the street east to west .................... then stops.
Waiting to fill love's hearts bleeding fallow

A fond caress harvested from fingertips
your touch gliding beside her nightly glow
kinship undimmed by a fleeting eclipse
before her ocean plunge she lets it go.

too soon is gone the glorious sight
as mountain and tree tops reach up to hide
the fairest of moon's rare earthly delight
super and blue and blood together abide 

now i in repose and she without nightie
slip down deep sleep as daybreak begins
tucking earthen warm leaves round each tightly
kissing and kissing the cheeks of her grins.

What a stunningly lovely poem on the Moon’s ebb and flow through the night and it’s glowing effect on countless bleeding hearts, dear E. The mistress of earthly tides, in love and loss, she abides. And we, who thirst evermore for her beauty, yearn for the night everlastingly.

Very endearing personification of the Moon in this poem. The tucking of the earthen warm leaves felt so cozy and delightful!

My heartfelt compliments to you and Barleygirl, on this gem 💕

Well, one of you already used the word gorgeous, but that is my choice too, to describe the smooth, velvety flow of your words. It's impossible to see the lines were one of you starts and the other follows, but I guess that is the sign of a great collaboration. I love the twinkle you have both given your words. They do shine.

Dear Gene and Margie,
What a wondrously beautiful, sensually captivating cowrite you've embraced us with.
In a flow smooth as silk, a rhyme-scheme sublime, you've awakened our senses with sweet poetic voices undetectable which is whom's, each verse blending ever-so seamlessly.
I love the combined mood, moment, and metaphorical imagery set by two masters at the pinnacle of their craft … I hope you'll cowrite many more for us.

Thank you for gifting us such a charming melody for our hearts and imaginations to dance to … brightest blessings! ⁓ Richard : )

Beautiful I can just see how the moon slowly moving to give way for the dawn- he loved the sun he died for her every night so she could shine- beauty of nature and allowing all things to have their place in time - can see the illumination all around as the moon lights up the night and awakens the sleepless souls - only to leave us breathless longing for more- wonderful words 🌹
