Moon Thoughts

Moon Thoughts

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw
"

( a lady of moods, one of two poems posted)

"
she gifts the radiance
of lunar light to those in peril
on ocean's waves or those 
who cry out pleading for some
sanctuary in far off lands whilst
in the hands of dictators

her luminous shine has been
a comfort to many a soldier
of life seeking solitude in the 
early hours, too weary to find
sleep, too exhausted for rest

she is a constant on our journey
from the day of our birth to that
final breath taken on earth, her
stunning beauty beguiles, ever
a source of mystery is this lady
of the night, a bright lantern
for the lost and lonely

A wonderful poem shared dear Chris. I love the moon. I ensure to show my grandchildren my full moons and we seek the Fall moons and the blue moons. The Native Americans believe, the moon held great mystery and power. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry my dear friend.

You killed it on the last line Chris. How many silly ayem scenes has it illuminated, as we ponder lifes meaning, with coffee in hand. Much much many much I'd wager!
Yet if it were to take a night off, we would all take it as a sign of the impending apocalypse and scare the bejeesus out of ourselves....
But we won't, will we? Us through the nighters will just nod, smile and know, she's just having a lie in 😀
Now, even for me, this is still a really weird review, but that's just me, not your fine work, honest.
It is strange how the moon can affect us, eh? 😀

Thank you butterfly, you review very much appreciated :)

Chris
I have mixed emotions about the moon
I do think it is beautiful in its many phases but if I am looking at it, I am usually awake when I would rather be asleep

She is surely a beacon of hope and light since ages past. Her magic never ceases to stun and beguile. The beauty in your words is an apt tribute to this most wondrous of celestial charmers.
