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.

Thank you for your wonderful comments, Tim! I have a figurine of a fairy that is perched on a crescent moon, and she was my inspiration for this poem. I've always had a fascination with Saturn, since I was a kid. So, that would be an amazing travel destination! :)

Hi Kelly, Well done for a super win. I was drawn to your poem as the title 'Moon fairy' was intriguing. I felt an affinity with your beautifully drawn fairy, for in my dreams are visions of Earth viewed from the Moon's perspective. This is a fav. Regards Theresa xx
