New moon and sidekick sliver.
Sliver holds new moon
Behind a midnight blue curtain.
But new moon glows against the fold
Waiting patiently to appear.
A cast of stars do glitter,
Softly highlighting slivers presence
With new moon as its halo.
A combined ensemble so bold.
Exquisite is nights’ stage, none interfere.
Sliver dances slowly without a quiver.
Such an angel in flight
Stirring an evening breeze.
As the leafy treetops applaud and mold
Into natural rhythm, cool and clear.
The curtain fold slowly closes on sliver.
The show comes to an end,
To rest, only to be renewed
For tomorrow’s performance sold
Awaiting transformation a full moon to cheer.
Our full moon this month will be this Friday ~ if you have moment, go outdoors and enjoy the view! I wrote this poem in 1989 ~ at the time I was a “single” and spent many hours writing poetry….or trying to figure out the rhythm and reason of my life at that point in time. I will share others from time to time. Writing has been a great solace in my life ~ in the valley’s, straight-away’s and hilltops. You learn a lot about one’s self by putting pen to paper. I enjoy going back and rereading ~ and, sometime’s I wonder “what was I thinking! And Why??!! “) Then the flood gates open ~ “Oh ~ …. now I remember”. Memories are precious ~ may I be so blessed to be able to pull them out, and dust them off, for a very long time to come.
To all ~ have a great evening. Always, Elichap
