Moonstruck We are so close my love, that on certain dark days we set each other aflame exploding like aerials that quickly burst then dissipate leaving vapors of remains that the wind blows away. As quickly as our arguments ignite, they are over in a flash and we are reminded of the explosive power of the new moon. We go to separate rooms to cool and recoup from the intensity of opposites drawn by each other's flame unable to keep from a combustible explosion on days when the dark and moody moon seems to delight in our conflict. 12-6-18

Thank you Jennifer. My husband and I are passionate opposites and that naughty Luna effects us when she is dark and moody. : )

Hi Connie, you always manage to let emotions sing within your poetry. Once again the emotions flow and I am mesmerized as I read your wondrous poetic lines. The moon forever touches my soul, whatever stage it is in, as it does with most of us. It has such a pull on us, mystical, magical. The moon can affect our emotions. You always sing emotions so well. An excellent write Connie. have a wonderful weekend. Hugs....Mike. XX

I'm going to keep my thoughts on 'personal' elements out of this box and praise the beauty and knowledgeable depth of your expressions for the unique fire opposites hold. Genuinely unfolds many of love's possible layers. Love you ... CayCay

This was not an ekphrasis poem Sara. I wrote the poem and then searched the net for a photo to go with it. Thank you for stopping by. Happy holidays to you and your family. ; ) xxoo

OH, Connie, my wife and I call them "Irish" spats.....loudly vocal, intense, followed by a steamy cooling off period akin to the aftermath of an August thunderstorm. Very nicely written

You described it perfectly John...and must admit my Irish is aroused during the dark moon at times. Thank you for your insightful comment John. : )

Such a beautiful poem filled with love and desire and the pull of the moon. How it touches us from it's post in the night sky is often magical but can also be troubling at times. The moon, when you are in love is beautiful but with a broken heart can be a sad and lonely vision. Really nicely done Connie. Sorry I got a little carried away, the moon has that effect on me. :)

Thank you Heidi....I pondered on rather to make it two words or one. Your comment convinced me it should be one. Thank you my friend. It is a new moon and she makes me a bit loony. : ) xxoo

Romantic imagery of sweet love under the moon. So true about the arguments that are over in a flash..many can relate to the scene. You write it so well, Connie.

I appreciate that Vijay. It happens every month so I try to be aware, but that doesn't always work. My husband has the Christmas spirit this year and he sent my daughter and her family on a cruise to visit our Hawaiian Islands for seven days. My granddaughters are thrilled the whole family is looking forward to it. They leave this Saturday. I can imagine how wonderful it will be see all the Christmas decorations on board and at their many stops. Thank you for your lovely comment and I wish you and yours a blessed holiday. : )

That was lovely; sister moon is a passionate sibling and she does love lovers. Thanks for a lovely penned read.

So wonderfully expressed, Connie. I can see you and your hunk of a husband standing on a mountain and looking upon the Pacific. So romantic. I've sent you soup mail.

Since time began the moon is associated with passion and romance. Who isn't awestruck by the sight of a beautiful bright moon. Well written Connie. Tom.
