Moon Is My Muse

La Luna’s sneaking through the sky tonight; I bet she thinks her creamy sheen is hid by clouds of grey, but now and then her light becomes exposed. Just who’s she trying to kid? She slowly slides behind nocturnal haze; I see a slice of her as she creeps by. Perhaps this is another lunar phase, one in which she’s showing us she’s sly. That Luna is mysterious we know, but also she’s a muse for those who woo. So why does she withhold a steady glow, and what’s an ardent suitor going to do? He tells his love, “The moon shines full tonight.” They gaze up at her face; she drifts from sight! 3/1/13 for Russell Sivey's Moon is my Muse Poetry Contest

    It's really not her fault. She's there. It's those intrusive clouds. Congratulations Andrea. Nice win. Love, Joyce

    Andrea, Thank-you for reviewing Sarah's Song. The idea that we can extract fossil carbon with impunity when it took nature a billion years to sequester it is a funny one. I can not say enough what a wonderful poet you are. We do live in an incredible universe that is so much fun.

    Another beautiful Sonnet from you Andrea!Now I am going to write a monoku for this contest.Tell me how to squeeze this sonnet into a monoku!

    Ah, the moon ()()! I just can't help myself. You are an excellent poet. Clouds and haze do get in the way. I also like the way you have made the moon female. A nice touch. A pleasure as usual. I thank-you for this and for all you do.

    This is great Andrea; There are so many beautiful poems about the moon. Yours is one of them. Hey I didn't know that you knew spanish. Have you got spanish blood in you, or you just learned the launge? Either way, that's great. Vaya Con Dios. Lucilla
