Shine, Mediterranean Selene
unique goddess of this dark life
glow with pride and forget the strife
all my nights are lonely and serene.
I'm yours, only yours, pure and clean
and although your distrust is rife
soon, so soon... you'll become my wife
believe these words of sacred mien.
Do not let envy plant those seeds
of fear, of jealousy and spite
from the demons come those breeds
whose gossip and lies seek our fight
They're who expect your heart concedes
to steal what lives just for your light.
Earth’s sphere of fire bids adieu to me
As dying embers gleam across the sea
In rare hues reflected by autumn trees,
Swirling in motion with October’s breeze.
I feel the joy this season has to share
In golden harvest that the branches bear,
And I am thankful for this blessed year,
For divine abundance I share so dear.
The sun and moon take on a special glow
As thunder clouds move swiftly with the flow.
Yes, autumn coaxes feelings to revive,
Those mem’ries of past seasons still alive.
When autumn spreads her dress of lacey frost
I know, in breathless beauty, I’ll be lost.

Alone I stare in silence of the night
And shiver with the breeze caressing cold
The brilliance of the moon’s seductive light
Illuminates a painting to behold
A ring of pink surrounds its misty glow
As if embracing it in lover’s skies
I watch the love from my spot down below
Alone I gaze in awe with sleepy eyes
I think of him so many miles away
Awak’ning to the sun’s first gentle peep
His moon has disappeared into the day
And come to sweetly watch me while I sleep
And yet I slumber not, as still I swoon
With misty eyes I’m gazing at the moon
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? (psalm 8:3-4)

Gracing the night as a pale shining sphere
Shedding her beams o'er the land far and near
Gliding along with the curtain of stars
With her companions, bright Venus and Mars
Light all around me reflects on the snow
Bathed in the presence of Luna's fair glow
Moonlight the same over thousands of years
Shines on the earth as a comfort to fears
Moon that is full, or a crescent that wanes
On through the ages, fair Luna remains
Kissing the slumbering earth with her light
Shining in beauty so soft through the night
As the earth does endure, as the ages roll by
May the moon ever shine as a lamp in the sky
~ Written 2/26/13 for the Moon is my Muse Contest. First Place.
The chill of night holds old remorse
Like some old song I've heard before
And though a half moon knows the chords
Such crescent music strays off course
Through dark of night all eyes are blinded
Such slender light, so small upturned
With strains of sadness so aligned
Where even stars weep sad nocturnes
Please moon, become the whole you are
I need your lamp to see me through
Although there are one million stars
This night is lonely without you
So slight your smile that fills the eye
Each falling star will search the sky

The Moon Is My Muse
A blanket of stars gives way to the moon’s magical light
A nostalgic illumination that brings our dreams back to life
As we sleep, our eyes capture the moonlit glow
Thus showing us a place where our passions can flow
Our minds from then on are placed into a deep trance
One that captures someone’s heart in splendor of romance
Tranquility and peace will fill the soul at last
As the moon shines so magically through each shadow it cast
Tonight a scene is painted through our deepest sleep
One that our souls will vow to always reflect and keep
In times of stress and problems that will follow
We know that this moonlight scenery will glow again tomorrow
Through the blanket of stars the moon will be released
To capture our souls once again into a state of peace

Broken moon, we are the same, you and I,
waning, as our repeating cycles crop
time. Listen to the police siren cry
below, chasing fools unwilling to stop.
Lunacy, this endless race to next week,
next month. The rush smothers verse. Absent breath
signals its demise and your pallid cheek,
again, turns from that sonnet’s sudden death.
Be kind, silence the chimes, please, slow this night,
then, instead, I will offer you an ode
that honours inspiration, docile light,
my pen will plod on as hours erode.
But moon you're too still, too simply bitten,
While I fight for each rhyme left unwritten.

The moon plays at being the midnight sun
with abandon he struts across the sky
in such majesty it catches my eye
I bow in obeisance, my heart is won
Behind him come plunderous clouds of white
riders on horses with dust in their wake
racing steeds on a quest to overtake
the renegade moon in his selfish plight
Closing in for capture they poise their net
as the stars watch their proud King's demise
the clouds press on eager to seize the prize
and use the moon's light to their own benefit
The final bugle sounds, in hues of gold
The sun peeks up to watch it all unfold
She lived inside a hut within the wood-
a strange and lovely woman, nature’s child.
They said she was a witch, but she was good,
a friend to all the creatures of the wild.
The solitary wolf she’d come across,
though wounded, was a living work of art.
He lay beneath the moon with coat of gloss
and eyes that sadly shone; he stole her heart.
He loved her; she admired his grace and might,
and so she sorrowed when he howled with pain,
for when the swollen moon glowed in the night,
she had to keep him fettered with a chain.
That true and feral beauty that she leashed -
was strangely what first drew her to the beast.

Oh silver moon, such sweet delight
Stimulating my craving mind
Searching for words that I cannot find
May I share your knowledge; can you make my heart bright
Free me from the emptiness I try to leave behind
Help me find the words that I need to combined
Inspire me as you do every single night
Oh gorgeous moon, my dearest friend
Set my imagination, light the fuse
Make it spark until the end
Creativity is a treasure to never lose
Give me the wisdom that you wish to send
Always and forever you are my muse
