This weekend my husband and I will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing--and our 50th wedding anniversary! So...today, I thought I'd share some of my original moon poems and one rocket poem.
THINGS TO DO IF YOU ARE THE MOON
Live in the sky.
Wax and wane
in your starry terrain.
Be a circle of light,
just a sliver of white,
or hide in the shadows
and vanish from sight.
Look like a pearl
when you’re brim-full
Hang in the darkness.
Dazzle the night.
Of the sun, bright
Orb in the evening sky, Earth's
Now that the sun has left the sky.
It’s time for ME to shine on high…
To spread my gentle pearly light
For all the creatures of the night.
Sometimes Moon is round and bright.
Sometimes it’s just a wisp of white.
Sometimes it vanishes from sight.
Moon is an ever-changing light.
Night sang Sun a lullaby,
sprinkled stars across the sky,
switched on Moon
and let it shine
into this little room of mine.
Off the launchpad in a
Cloud of smoke,
Kicking off its invisible tether to
Earth, it blasts into space, blazing a
Trail, searing the sky with its fiery tail.
The Poetry Friday Roundup is at Carol's Corner this week.
