Maybe the Moon

moon by djsanka


Maybe I am pulled
by time and tide
in two directions
a wave swirled in upon herself
both coming and going
nothing left behind but foam.

Maybe this full fat light
has illuminated more
than you were meant to see
and we had better turn back
before her brightest beams
blow along my most corrugated cracks.

Maybe her darker side
would better suit
these dreams hidden
too close to my hollow heart
and there’s a fragile future
phase waiting, shrouded in her shadow.

    De – pure magic – moon-magic!

  3. She sure is something, isn’t she! Always attracted me to her (being Cancerian)
    Lovely prose attesting to her beauty.

    You sure know how to write ’em!

  5. Laurie Kolp says:

    I really enjoyed this, De… especially the ending.

  6. Rinkly Rimes says:

    The dark side of the moon will always bring out the poet in us.

  7. Ruth says:

    one ‘like’ clicked doesn’t seem enough for how I feel about this gorgeous poem, so eloquent, so lyrical (other than that, seeming to come from my own heart)… and the “Maybe” that begins each stanza adds… somehow, something, I can’t quite define

  8. Your creative heart is beyond words for me today…so beautiful, De.

    This just made my hold my breath, and at the end I let it out, with a sigh, because I felt the same as you wrote! Wonderfully done!

  10. De, the idea of taking the moon’s “face” and its “dark side” and applying it to yourself, or to the character of whom you write… brilliant. Or as my friend Bobby would say, “Brillo!” This was meditative and moving. Thanks, and peace, Amy

    The moon, oh! the moon, and all its sides; I’ll take it…
