The Nocturnal Lady

The Nocturnal Lady

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

For everyone

"
The spring air tickles with summer warmth
Stars gleams with a brilliance that enthralls
Their illumination shines brightly
As it engages the curious mind

Charcoal sky void of feathered clouds
Enhanced by a glorious full moon
That showers across the glittering night
With fingers of light stretched out gently

The Nocturnal Lady dressed in silk
As she beckons the sun to slumber
While she twirls her hues of purple inspire
The imagination fully captured

She tucks the sun catchers into bed
As her elegance expands the horizon
She whispers to her children that stir
As they rouse from their daylight dreaming

A stillness enhances these satin hours
As a vast muted tune plays softly
It lures the mind with downy soft peace
For nature’s brightness has been dimmed

The vibrations, a tone of a tiger’s purr
Low and rhythmic with a constant sound
That soothes the scattered chaos of earth
As serenity settles all beings

The Onyx Lady bows gracefully
As her shadows spread upon the ground
Her hidden treasures covered in the dark
Their secrets kept behind shimmering veil.

Me in a Rapture. I am a Nocturnal Lady as I often walk around our Top Observatory Floor and observe the Moon and Stars… … this poem is a Keeper for me and gives me Hope for Eternity. Blessings… Pat

I’m glad you liked the tiger’s purr and the description of Lady Night herself

Very flowery and descriptive writing, nature, color, light, all things that feed the senses. The final stanza ties it all together with a shimmering bow.

I am glad you liked the description in this poem an the way the last stanza tied it all together
You did a great job handling the diction in this. There's nothing like a moonlit night. Sadly, I only get to see a couple of stars out these days. Too much light pollution I suppose.

Great writing, PB. I really enjoyed.

"sun catchers"... ha.. I really love that. It's the best way to describe eyes.

The moon does have a way of tucking people in after the frenetic activity of daytime. This offering skillfully communicates the peacefulness of the nighttime hours. It might even be good reading for those who have trouble settling down.

"Not secondary to the sun, she gives us his blaze again, Void of its flame, and sheds a softer day... In Heaven queen she is among the spheres; She, mistress-like, makes all things to be pure." - Thoreau

These night hours are special, intimate. It speaks for the vulnerable, something that is kept safe from the light and crowd. A very well crafted piece

Thank you!! I’m glad you enjoyed this night time poem.
The description of the night is truly a stellar spectacle of imagery with the way it is described with the immaculate vocabulary and so is the nocturnal lady, portrayed as a divine mother, this is simply so beautiful as it spills line by line,

"She tucks the sun catchers into bed,
as her elegance expands the horizon,"

the beauty of personification is how it enlivens each particle of our observation and how perfectly you have achieved it over here.

This was such a beautiful piece to read but if I have missed something in the ending couple stanzas I would love to hear of your feelings you wrote in them, looking forward to more of your poetry, dear poetic friend ❤️
