VERSE | MOON SONG

The full moon slips into my room 
With her gentle spotlight
I transform into a diva that has
Cozied up for the night

The moonlight glimmers on my skin
Soft and translucent
I become a mermaid in her cove
Glistening after a swim

The moon also teases her way
Where angels fear to tread
She’s not afraid of my dark spaces
That lie grey and heavy as lead

The silver shimmer of the waxing moon
Conjures my quickening wings
I fly to where the eagles dare
Where fairies laugh and sing

The lady glows and off she goes
Leaving starlight in her wake
She moves towards another heart
For to gently gleam awake

The moon tonight has shared her light
And lit up visions and dreams
I watch her glide off silently
From lids now heavy with sleep.

VERSE | NIGHTFALL

Twilight descends upon the world 
All is bathed in a pale golden shimmer
The cacophony of daytime
Has softened to a gentle murmur

Soon the leaves begin to whisper
In the branches of the trees
They nod their heads in time
To the playing of the breeze

A serendipitous cloudburst
Falls softly on the grass
Before she mists our eyes with sleep
Earth cavorts in one last dance

Birds and beasts have disappeared
Under the velvety cloak of night
They all settle down to sleep
In the twinkle of her star light

The night time creatures stir awake
There’s a chirring in the air
A low hoot, the flap of wings
The darkening world is now theirs

As eventide wraps her arms around
Our earth of blue and green
I too lie in the hollow of her hands
And wait for restful dreams
