The Moon - 180 daysPage 4 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)
Quietly I tiptoe out into the night
Baby steps that make no sound
Sensors open to absorb
The bird calling in its sleep
A rabbit on a quest
The neighbours cat out prowling
It is instinctive as well as habit
For me to be as private and obscure
As the moon, rising in the night sky
Without fanfare
Tranquility, walking gossamer clouds

Ah, but as you appear I hear you coming
Crunching ice and snow of cymbals and breaking glass
You case your territory as a male tiger
Animals run in all directions
You want to be heard
That little boy who jumps into a mud puddle
And smiles from ear to ear
The volume turned on high frequency
You make an entrance
Into my parade.

^exquisitely beautiful and peaceful

flickering in beauty of who you are
like a lighthouse on a distant shore
or the light of the brightest star
we are not confined but travel far
to infinity goes our energy
and with it our essence carries
to touch others as we flow
lighting up the darkest night
a flash of such bright light
or subtle embers burning low
always visible by our glow

Rose I can see it in my mind the black onyx sphere cupped in a hand like the finest crystal. That was great imagery. WeAre1 "Flickering in the beauty of who you are" you take the moon through it's course taking on the personality of a woman - well almost *grin*

I'm in New York City but have yet to see the moon
Saturn ruled Leo last night
washed out by the city light
in this quaint hamlet outside
the apple
only the seeds
waiting for fruitation
I'm off on an adventure today
to see the museum and art gallery
then dinner at a fondu restarant
with my beautiful daughter
who is ever so more lovely
then any moon in the sky
with her pale sweet face
glowing with an inner beauty.

That orbed maiden with white fire laden,
Whom mortals call the Moon,
Glides glimmering o'er my fleece-like floor,
By the midnight breezes strewn;
And wherever the beat of her unseen feet,
Which only the angels hear,
May have broken the woof of my tent's thin roof,
The stars peep behind her and peer;
And I laugh to see them whirl and flee,
Like a swarm of golden bees,
When I widen the rent in my wind-built tent,
Till the calm rivers, lakes, and seas,
Like strips of the sky fallen through me on high,
Are each paved with the moon and these.

-- Shelley, from /The Cloud/

The First Day

The flickers came to life today
With the world
I knew
They were coming
Last night
When I saw the moon had
Come closer
I could almost
Pick it up
A child with a
Toy ball

Bathed in her warm steel light
walked towards the window
She bathed me with her
senseless grin...

For I long for you
to became as one
under her light
senseless grin

How does my heart
ache so,
where you is concerned
senseless grin
now
Naked and alone
I stood there
letting her bathe me
senseless grin

Bark cry and tear,
I could,
for the heart roared
senseless grin

Enduring, timeless
now sore
now laughing
senseless grin

Alone with you
the moon,
quite alone,
with your senseless useless grin.

in an ice wind from the north
the sea mist has disappeared.
the full moon has edges
and her opalescent shine
lights the forests well enough
to walk in at night.
dave told me, this morning,
over coffee at the island store,
that he had walked the trail
through the alder grove
to frank's beach to see
the reflection of the moon,
to take her picture
but his camera froze
in the ice wind, so dave,
stood for an hour
breathless, "god, don,
isn't life beautiful?"

Bathed in her warm steel light
i walked to my window
on that night
senseless grin.

Alone
wishing that we
could become as one
senseless grin.

Hurt, bite and tear
it did indeed at me
stare
senseless grin.

Hopes and wishes
clashed to the
rugged shore
senseless grin.

Naked and alone
letting her kiss me,
after you were gone
senseless grin.

Touch of steel
yet warm and inviting
my body ached
senseless grin.

Looked at you
inspiring, with longing
my heart ached
senseless grin.

Warrior, amazon
naked I stood
letting you kiss me
senseless grin.

No more fight
no more games
you win...
with your senseless useless grin.

We must be approaching a full moon again. This always seems to rise with the tides. Rose I love the pic with your grandchildren. They are so adorable and you are so lucky! I enjoyed the poem too by the way.
Lipo you do have a way with words. They are woven as stories and yes life is beautiful!! 1984 welcome and thank you for the poems. It seems like you need to get it out! Wals I didn't forget you. I did read your poem a little while ago and thank you for bringing this topic back up. I have had a really bad cold the last week and haven't written much but I thank everyone for their inspiration.

Full Moon

When very young I thought the moon
A giant egg about to hatch
As it grew to full fruition before my eyes

And I wondered what would come
From inside the glistening orb
Thrown haphazardly up into the sky

Be it a young girls fancy
Conjuring up a thousand
Sea serpents or silver birds

Good or evil
Or random chance
This dawning of a new discovery

I would sit on the edge of my bed
Long into the darkness
Contemplating how I could reach out and touch

This talisman in the sky
My birth sign, my friend

Would it dissolve into a raining shower
Of birthing stars or
Diamonds exploding over the world

It still brought comfort into my quiet reverie
My destiny carved in Queen Anne’s lace
And man’s determination to conquer
This night time flower.

Autumns poem from the end of the last page:




Full Moon

When very young I thought the moon
A giant egg about to hatch
As it grew to full fruition before my eyes

And I wondered what would come
From inside the glistening orb
Thrown haphazardly up into the sky

Be it a young girls fancy
Conjuring up a thousand
Sea serpents or silver birds

Good or evil
Or random chance
This dawning of a new discovery

I would sit on the edge of my bed
Long into the darkness
Contemplating how I could reach out and touch

This talisman in the sky
My birth sign, my friend

Would it dissolve into a raining shower
Of birthing stars or
Diamonds exploding over the world

It still brought comfort into my quiet reverie
My destiny carved in Queen Anne’s lace
And man’s determination to conquer
This night time flower.

Juno's gaze tonight caught my soul
siren song silent clasping hand
cold her touch
silver lace seduction
over the barren fields of soltice
shine your lying light
entrap me in your web
you have forsaken your lover the Sun
yet I know it is not for I
this soul you hold is merely a pawn
for at dawn your envious lover shall arise
quickly cast aside my heart
as I seek solitude in sheltered haze
protected by briar and thorn

I think if misfiled this poem...thought to refile it here...hope you don't mind, I'm not so used to office work after all!


I walked out under the moonlit sky,
the bright full moon just kissed my eye;
I asked if things were going his way;
the happy face moon had nothing to say.
the thought of it brought me to cry;
to waltz the moon, to no reply.
I'll dance again another day;
'neath moonlit skies, or clouds of gray,
but long I'll think of that happy face;
that caught my eye from outer space.

Shadow it is good to see you back and writing up a storm all over the pond! And hey I loved your poem in N & W's thread so don't let anyone intimidate you - let that romantic side of you loose and show your stuff. *grin*

Nothin2it you are always welcome to post in any style.

Trulio I am not sure how to tie that all together. It isn't exactly like the theme of the moon but interesting.

"It might be said that the seeing [of beauty] is merely the sequel to some
law [of our own nature], so that what we call qualities do not actually
exist in the substances.[Plotinus]"

A law is a discovery of reality.


I think T was getting to the point of perceptions and how they go awfully wrong due to some inherent rule that exists in our person. Perhaps in response to the thread itself? I dunno. I couldn't sleep, read it twice and thought it was interesting to go through....I don't have any sleeping pills.

The moon over the desert of Australia
must be a sight to behold
do you walk outside when all is still
and dip your soul into the vast expanse
the red sands or orange drifts
do they change in colour as the moon rises?
I know it's time for a walk-a-bout
I would love to rent a caravan
and explore the shores
of white beach and sea swept cliff
sit on the edge of the world
with a glass of wine and a candle
lit in celebration
some day perhaps when the children have grown
and there is money in my pocket
I will cross the ocean
to dine with a friend.

I thought about my someday once,
my someday never comes;
I thought perhaps I was a dunce
just driven by the drums.
Stupid how we chase some dreams
like children in the street
waving dollars for ice creams
while drivers just beat feet.
I don't live for someday now
perhaps now is enough;
someday is a pain somehow,
a burden just too rough.
I'd like to sail the sky above,
and watch the ocean blue;
to fly away and fall in love,
it's something we all do.
Today is just another day;
the same as all before;
but different in a special way
there's no 'someday' in store.
Nice to wake the morning new,
and see it as it is;
someday I'll contemplate the view,
today, I'll look for bliss.

Yup...back to the rhymes

It's good to have aspirations and dreams, hopes and desires...but I've waited for a lot of "somedays" that never showed up, even after working hard to see them show up. If it's today, and I show up, that's plenty for me anymore. There's been plenty of days I didn't want to show up...tired of waiting on "someday." I think it was really the simple pleasures like seeing that happy faced moon, and remembering happy...remembering. Then realizing all the time wasted on wanting. Time is of the essence...we only get so much of it to begin with. Hope you find that view sometime soon...it's there, close by, I'm sure of it. Just as sure as I've looked past plenty of them, looking for 'someday.'

I can't email you on that one because it says I'm too OLD! It is important to have your dreams - some people are realists and never make things happen but it's the dreamers who have the will to make it happen. Timing is everything. When you are job hunting is not the time to backpack across Australia. I learned early in life to live each day for what it is but I will never give up my dreams.

...Timing

"If I could save time in a bottle..." Jim Croce

I know what you're saying...and it's not like I don't have dreams or aspirations, but they don't get relegated to "someday" anymore. I work on them every day as best I can, and go on to tomorrow. It's not time to do anything but find a job when you don't have one...but I can't do that all day long, so I drop in here and write a thing or two, play some guitar, and then back to the engines I go...the phone rang a couple of times, contracts delayed - on hold, so I keep looking, writing, playing guitar...what I can do.

I fixed that little piece of discrimination btw.

Wow Autumn, I just read the poem on your profile...

YOU can write! I always knew that, but that poem just blows me away like the purest issuing music... Are you sure that you are not a lyre or something - a human harp - that inspiration just chooses to play sometimes?

I am curiously touched by the sheer breathing of that Very Angelic Voice ~ pure poetry in fluidly melting moving motion...

I was gonna try to post a poem here, something about the Moon - for you Autumn Fantasy - since that is your birth planet you are ruled by...
But quite frankly, after reading the poem on your profile - um, I don't even have the confidence to wanna try right now (sounds silly, huh, but I am being honest!)

I am a bit intimidated by Your Incredible Poetic Artistry and I believe I would be doing you a disservice if I tried to write a poem for you when I suddenly feel all strangely wobbly kneed...

So please do keep sharing your Voice of an Angel with all of us...

And I am so glad that you are feeling better now (over that exceedingly uncomfortable bug :) finally...

Thank you for your very 'in-tune' presence.

sincerely,
me

vailed as the the bride
perhaps the widow this night rises
beauty disguising sorrows
tears shed
sorrows unheard by silent whispering stars
I watch this night your passage
as all nights you stand watch
heavens above are the widows walk of time
forever hoping
waiting
for you long past lover to return
