I AM SPELLBOUND

I gaze at her for hours; I am spellbound; I am rapt As she draws me up beside her I am happy to be trapped There is something mesmerizing, that she radiates to earth Her circumference daily shrinking; her magnitude, her girth PREMIER contest Contest Rithimus Divisa 3 Sponsor Gregory R Barden 6th PLACE Taken from my poem ‘A Pregnant Moon' Written 19th January 2019 Standard Contest 163 Sponsor: Brian Strand

Your choice of lines taken from the original poem allows us to view your new one from a different perspective. I like that. It is not necessarily about the same subject as the original.

Beautiful day here, clear blue sky - perfection and to top it all last night I saw a stunningly beautiful Venus shimmering above a very new moon (crescent) below her, it was utterly mesmerising and took my breath away, wow...
