The depth of skies
The many eyes
That have, rested upon the nights full moon
The maidens who’s hearts swooned
At the sight
Of the night sky
Gazing upon us, a transcendence of time
Lightning our way with its mysterious shine
Many a wanderer was lost
Huddled with brushes filled with frost
Gazing at the blazing reflection
Of the days sun
Trying to express the magnificence
Of the nights moon
Making many a writer and artist’s heart swoon
A collaboration of artists through time
Expressed in the moons shine

* Our solar system, most especially the sun and the moon, has been a source of many great ponderings, thoughts, revelations, discoveries, mysteries, frustrations and awe over centuries of time. A transcendence of inspiration*
I really like this one. Simple, clean…elegant. thanks for sharing and inspiring!
My pleasure Morgan. I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
Did you see the recent Super Moon?
Surely you’re compiling your poetry for a book. I think the “supermoon” kept me up writing too late last night. Still cross eyed this morning…
What makes you say that?
I didn’t have time to write last night, it’s almost impossible to find time to write period. What were you writing?
I love your poetry, and I would procure your book when available. I’m not sure if the supermoon happened up North, but it was really big and bright here. Here’s a short article about it. http://earthsky.org/tonight/is-biggest-and-closest-full-moon-on-june-23-2013-a-supermoon#.UchhXVoo7bU I was writing a profile/interview for an indie band -posting soon- and agonizing over an article I’m writing about an unsolved murder. That one is going to take a bit longer to complete; it’s based on over 600 pages of letters and articles, and an interview with the victim’s mother. It’s a rabbit hole type story that has been very challenging to work through. My times to write are sporadic, that’s why I was up all night on Sunday. 🙂
Well you are in luck because I am writing a poetry book. A compilation of what I have written thus far 🙂
I’m happy to hear that you had a productive night. Writing comes and goes.
Let me know when you’ve completed the article on the unsolved murder. I look forward to reading it!
Great! I will be patiently awaiting your book. I should be done with my article in a week or so. Conducting the last interview tomorrow, then publishing. You won’t believe that it’s true.
I look forward to it!
…and last night’s supermoon certainly was bright!
We had a hard time seeing it here. It was very overcast. The glimpse that we did see was very pink!
Nice work! I wrote a piece called the same thing last night. http://shesays12.wordpress.com/2013/06/23/moonshine/
Great minds think a like!! 😉 I will be sure to check it out. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Thank you so much. I appreciate it.
hey Mrs 🙂
Its so awe inspiring to av people across continents musing over the SaMe super moon…..
“A collaboration of artists through time
Expressed in the moons shine” indeed ..:)
Isn’t it amazing? We so often forget that people are in different time zones and corresponding from all over the world! But we all gaze at the same moon and get warmed by the same sun!
