Moon Fairy

A crescent moon, shining it's silver smile in the midnight sky
so beautiful, yet so desolate and alone in the vast galaxy.
But, tonight I can see that she has found some company.
An enchanting fairy sits within the crescent
one bare foot dangles off the edge,
into the endless void of the black universe
the other bare foot rests on the moon's surface.
I wonder what that feels like?

Perched with her hands on her knees she gazes at Saturn's rings
watches the comets, with their glittering tails, as they fly by her.
The milky way, so majestic, as are the constellations
the stars wink at her and she reaches out to touch one.
I wonder what that feels like?

There is only the sound of silence way up here
no winds to blow her luminous blonde hair.
The heavens are calm on this night
as a few puffy clouds pass over the Earth.
This is her favorite planet to watch
you wouldn't believe how beautiful the blue oceans are from up here.
Each of it's cities have millions of lights glowing overhead
like a galaxy all it's own.

The wonders of this world aren't so wonderous from her view
so, once in awhile she flits her wings down here
to get a closer view of Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower.
Her favorite wonder, the Statue of Liberty
watches over a busy city, just as she watches from the moon.
While keeping her eye on things and embracing the moon's company.

    I loved reading this again, Kelly! There are times in life when you want to be reminded of magic and enchantment, just so we remember that's the true nature of things... so, reading this again worked perfectly for me:) thank you!

    Hi Kelly, well this is a magical little dream. I do Love to live In the magical world and read writes from it, like this one Kelly. You give us the moon, stars, planets, a fairy, our own world, all wrapped up with a red bow and your own wondrous words to show the vision. You give us a view of the earth from space, through the eyes of the fairy. What can one say. This is a magical piece, well written, anyone could enjoy this one. This is true gold. Have a good day. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Mike Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I'm happy that you enjoyed this poem! This poem took me on a magical journey while I was writing it. That is what makes being a writer so wonderful. We can go anywhere and do anything, anytime that we wish to. And, we can make those creatures from the fantasy world come to life! :)
