One Sky

One Sky

A Poem by Jack...
"

Connecting via a beautiful moon - My take on Tuesday night's blue moon

"

 

One Sky

 

Quiet echoes bring the night of cricket song and firefly

Masks of clouded abstract shades intercept

Foaming colors take the eye to moments of shadowed dreams

Crimson plumes beneath a starlit canopy

Cars, like low flying jets, unaware, stay within the highway lines

Footing soft on dry grass down paths not yet carved

 

A sphere, above mature pecan trees, appears as curtains lift

igniting the eastern sky in beaconed majesty

Slowly puzzle pieced mist clears and bursts of color,

rainbows of dark bands announce the arrival

as this evening’s lunar show begins amidst

heavy sighs and mesmerized smiles

 

Full in splendor, basking in myth,

the blue moon, distant yet touching the soul

for this night is shared, beyond horizon’d glare

and focused thoughts of two places, two hearts, one sky

Whispers follow beams of ancient descent, quietly finding her

hoping she will hear and know…for it is this moon that connects us

It was a lovely sight, but then again, it always is. I love to look upon the moon, and often imagine it as a voyuer, or a navigator leading us home. The connotations you speak of illuminate the night, Jack, for it truly is "this moon that connects us."


"Full in splendor, basking in myth,
the blue moon, distant yet touching the soul
for this night is shared, beyond horizon’d glare"

...so beautiful, Jack!

Thanks so much my sweet friend. You words are always the reason I smile.
I'm so jealous of all you folks that saw the moon...it was foggy and cloudy here which pretty much ruled it out for me haha This is an unspeakably majestic piece...reminds me of Moonlight Drive by The Doors ("Let's swim to the moon honey, let's climb through the tide...") You've evoked an incredible journey with your observations...well done Jack.

Your poem paints the myth into reality, a lovely and lyrical description of nature's phenomenon. The moon brings two souls together, and your poetry unites all who read it...

Wow! I like the moon...it's beauty in its fullness. Last summer here, my books have that theme in connection with the full moon.

I like the last two lines...very powerful.
"Whispers follow beams of ancient descent, quietly finding her
hoping she will hear and know…for it is this moon that connects us"

Great, Jack.

Yes...I sat outside in my lawn chair last night, and the night before...watching that beautiful moon through the trees in my backyard. And I thought about another, also watching that same moon...so far away, and yet so close to my heart...
Beautiful piece...I love it.

It is the moon that connects us. What a beautiful poetic thought. When we look at the moon we share that moment no matter where we are. I was pleased you included the blue moon as she is making her appearance now. Lovely as always.
