lone peaceful sphere loosed in that inky black sky


the world’s gone down
-ward spiral again, all

clunk and funk and junk
-mail treason. loss of reason,
rhyme. time.

but hush now, come with me.
look up,
the sky’s gone quiet.
we’ll ask the moon to scare you up
a spot of tea.


It’s Quadrille Monday over at dVerse and I’m hosting. Come play!

    Ah yes…..look up at the moon for some respite from this CRAZY election season! I’ll take that cup of tea, please…..and can hardly wait for all the ads and junk mail to end. Just hope the results are ok….so very tired of people still believing the 2020 election was “stolen” and all the malarky that’s gone on since. Oh how we need rational voices!

  3. Always a delight to read your verses! Love what you did here.

  10. Down. down, down – then up at the Moon, pouring out the soothing beverage from her capacious tea-pot. Comforting, this uplift beyond xxx

    Tea for two–perfect! (K)

  12. Nicely done. Loved the closing lines.

  13. The hyphenated words and format work well to pull the eye down until we are ready to peer up at the moon and have a spot of tea! 👏👏🫖

    The moon is always willing to oblige, no matter the occasion.
