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.

*For Russell Sivey’s Moon is my Muse Contest

    Hmm, Being in a contest with you is like climbing into the ring with Ali, the rope-a-dope, the faint, the shuffle, then the left jab couplet to finish it off, love this sonnet, a true slice of life!

    this is an impressive sonnet, cyndi, as always I am awed by your skill, love the description of the moon's "pallid cheek"; I also read and enjoyed your yoga cat pose poem, very innovative...thanks for my win in your contest, it meant a lot, there were some great poems :)
