Happy Poetry Friday and Happy Lunar Moon
I looked to Moon for my poem this week, in celebration of having a Lunar Moon… and a bit of life slipped in too… If you spy a good image of her, send it my way, we’ve had only snow and clouds most days and evenings. I’ve also been on a villanelle run of late and used this form for my poem.
NEW YEAR LUNAR MOON
Love-filled lunar moon spread over night
New Year– New moon–hopes up high–
Dig deep inside spread some light
Guide us moon, celestial sky with open sight
Help us help each other with we and not just I
Love-filled lunar moon heal through night
Hope near, squelch fear, but keep hindsight tight
Too many lost lives, keep masked, don’t deny
Dig deep inside spread fellowman light
Altruism calls us all to achieve a higher height
Challenge preconceived notions, now’s our time to try
Love-filled lunar moon must care for all at night.
Stubborn ways wither away give up this old fight
Every life, carries weight with dreams deserving to fly
Dig deep inside launch beams of light.
Celestial auras bathe us all out of our fright
Turn our ignorance inside out–begin anew–retry
Love-filled lunar moon spread over world’s night
Dig deep inside spread truth-filled light.

A NEW MOON
A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
