Ra and Luna

Ra and Luna

A Poem by bella
"

Just my version of the love story between the moon and the sun Their love letters/correspondence between them is what the poem consists of

"
To Luna, 
   You brighten even the darkest 
parts of the wold 
   I love every curve and blemish 
I could spend hours studying them 

To Ra, 
   My love, my light comes from your beauty 
an internal glow even the blind can see
   if only I could feel it 
how I yearn for your warmth on cold, lonely nights

To Luna, 
   Please do not credit me so 
for light would not be possible without dark 
   surely you rule the stars
I will forever worship you as my queen 

To Ra, 
   I am no queen as I patiently wait 
For your every move, a slave if anything 
   the plants grow and the earth prospers for you
the people sacrifice health for beauty for you 

To Luna, 
   I could never allow someone of your unmatched beauty 
to be a slave, as butterflies need to fly freely 
   but the oceans move for you 
the shore and water have fallen in love for you 

To Ra, 
   They've fallen in love like I've fallen for you 
the heart wants what it cannot have 
   the shore and sea are blessed 
they sneak little moments of intimacy 

To Luna, 
   I pray for eclipses 
Your touch fulfills my deepest fantasies 
   enchanting and addicting I tell the stars about you 
they understand, they're waiting for a collision too 

To Ra, 
   That's not long enough for me 
I pray for the universe to explode 
   Only you, me and the stars 
The others keep us apart

To Luna, 
   Maybe someday, till then wish for seconds
I must rise now my dear
    illuminate the world so they may live to see you 
once more  
                 -Love Ra

To Ra 
   I swear to you I do 
I must sleep now my love 
   Drift into dreams only to see you 
Set to allow you to be king 
                  -Love Luna

A brave love story, I picture hand written letters travelling the vast distance to find each where we know they will be for all time. Delicate and romantic, a wish that we coul all understand each other as well as these two celestial lovers. Loved it!!!

This is as clever in it's genesis, as in it's execution. A simple concept, a romance of celestial bodies, whom seem to us, so interwined, yet reality reminds us that there never shall be consummation. I truly enjoyed this.

Beautiful. I liked the thoughts and the appreciation in the words. The words gentle, worthwhile and kind. Thank you Bella for sharing the amazing poetry.

Very nicely done. You're able to convey personality and depth of feeling through their conversation. My favorite line was "but the oceans move for you; the shore and water have fallen in love for you."
The feeling of longing is well depicted, and the "To" makes it seem like these are letters being read back and forth. Nice job again.

So brilliant! I love poems about the moon & other heavenly bodies, so this really tickles my fancy. I'm in awe of your creative way of weaving in so many everyday truths about these orbs -- eclipses, & "I must rise now my dear" (so clever!) If only most love interactions were like this -- each one giving the other credit while being modest about one's own contributions. Too bad real relationships don't display this kind of uplifting of the other person. Your poem shows a beautiful side of love that is often missing (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie
