Goodbye Sun Hello Moon

As I say bye to the Sun I greet the moon
It's the end of another day
Winter is here so our visit was short
I hate when the Sun goes away

I trust it to Yanny on her side of the World
She patiently waited to start her day
The moon was her companion
Thankfuly she sent it back my way

The moons lesser light
Is not it's light at all
It has been borrowed from the Sun
A mere reflection of perfection
That's meant to be shared with everyone 

I smile at the Moon
Yanny greets the Sun
It's time to put my computer away
I say good morning to Yanny
And wish her an extrordinary day


Dedicated to Yanny a Ray of Sunshine from the other side
of the World.

    Reflection of perfection? What a way to relieve a stressful tension (you my friend are worth a mention!)... it's almost 1 o'clock in the morning here and I might me becoming delirious... haha. What I like most about this poem is how both the sun and moon are greeted with warm smiles... for whatever reason the way you worded this I couldn't help but imagine an expert juggler... his balls being the sun and the moon... funny what poetry can do to people sometimes, eh?

    this is really awesome,,,Richard,, the sentiment is not lost on me either, having lived in the southern hemisphere for 45 years of my life, and the family in the northern..this poem reflects such wonderful peace and harmony, and appreciation of what most of us on the planet, take for granted...again a wonderful poem.. thank you...

    A sweet message for someone special just out of reach. Hellos and goodbyes bring such nice warm feelings especially like this! :)

    Poetic thoughts. The third verse has some great visuals, especially because I have always liked astronomy. Thanks for your comments too. Some people's are rather mindless, so I appreciate it when you take the time to write pertinent comments.
