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

What a beauty :)
