Moonlight Madness


The moon follows  like a secret above them frisky clouds.
Day and night the stars come  in crowds.
Like a shiny diamond, I can't stop staring. 
Lost in that moment that has no time sharing.

Holding on to the tree limbs like a puppeteer. 
I can hear the words the moon whispers into my ear.

I will illuminate into a world only I know of.
My very own little secret sparkling island getaway. 
A world where beauty hides the beast.
I'll be the only exile under a sunless night feast. 

I'm gonna give all my secrets away, as I wear my dreaming moonlit gear.
Comfort upon this mundane wonder, astronomical sphere. 

I will look one last time at the mooned night,
I will close my eyes, and find myself in a box kite flight.

I will lay myself down to sleep, 
Not allowing my imagination to runs off with wild sheep.
Like a Nightingale, I rather sit and serenade myself to sleep.
With the refreshing thought, the moon is like the pillow I keep

In this mad, mad world!
The moon seems to be the only object that holds it's sanity. 
Arousing me with it's inner peace and spirituality.  

for contest~

    Hi Linda, let's see how far I get with the comments this time before I have to stop. Moonlight Madness, Indeed, this Is Linda, takes the cool velvet dark night and the silver glow of the moon, weaves It together and starts to paint the canvas with her visions. Indeed this canvas you paint with visions of delight. Let the gentleness of the night and the glow of the moon fill the canvas then paint In your visionary foreground. Excellent. Have a good day. Catch you later. Love always....MIKE. XXX.

    There's a "Golden Girls" episode where Blanche has a "Moonlight Madness" party so that's the first place my mind went, then you sent me on a wonderful poetic journey. Another great poem from you :)

    I scanned through your poems looking for a rhyming poem. Those are what I enjoy the most. I found this poem and love it. I especially loved the line "Not allowing my imagination to run off with wild sheep." i.e. another way of saying not counting sheep. Very clever wording. The whole poem was very well done and witty. When animals are involved I'm really tickled. Great work.

    Sorry that things continue not well for your mother. So many sad things in life. A fellow teacher at my school left word on Facebook today that her 41 year old daughter had died. Another teacher lost her 25 year old daughter a few months ago. So much sadness!

    This is beautiful. Your poems are so well spoken, as though you are talking as yourself without censor. This is why I enjoy your work. The line 'find myself in a box kite flight' is especially evocative. Well done. Love, Deb

    Irma, I really wish I could find the first part of the poem. I am going to look some more! It is somehow incomplete and lacks emotional impact without it. If I don't find it, I will post what I have late tonight. thanks, Andrea
